right.  but since I had a few other things that I was tinkering with I
thought it wouldn't hurt to hold off on the release.  I specifically wanted
to get the @PHP_MODULE@ substitution to match need_php() in the same release
(which I didn't realize until now).

anyway, the A-T changes since the candidate have been minor, so I could go
either way with just releasing or rolling a new candidate at this point.

I never understood why all of that was part of Apache-Test anyway, so I
wouldn't mind yanking it out in the next release if someone volunteers :)
