I am still confused over when "Apache HTTP Server" and when "httpd".
Is the former just a baby step to the latter?

I wanted to do a mass sed of s/Apache 2/Apache HTTP Server 2/g, but if
"Apache HTTP Server" is only the marginally less confusing term I
didn't want the unnecessary churn.

("Apache 2" just happens to get a lot of hits and is a pretty safe expression)
