Apache 1.3 and 2.0 are different branches and live their own lifes, and are
not API compatible. Apache 1.3 is more stable (because no new features are
added to it) and has more modules available for it, why it is prefered by

I would only recommend Apache 1.3 for people that needs modules not yet
available for 2.0. Some would also argue that PHP doesn't play too well with
Apache 2.0, but I am yet to see that for myself.

Migrating to 1.3 -> 2.0 is not painless, and in some cases not possible.
Since so many still use Apache 1.3 it is still maintained.
