Hmmm... Not everything works properly in the 1.3 branch either.  And there
are certainly some things that are broken in 1.3 but working in 2.0.
That is pretty much the nature of software.

I would modify that slightly.  If you are setting up a new server, then
use Apache 2.0 unless one of the following applies:

- You need to use external modules that are not available or stable under

- You are affected by specific bugs that exist in 2.0 but not 1.3.

I wouldn't have any qualms about using 2.0 in production, as long as you
test is thoroughly.  (And the same goes for 1.3.)
