This is briefly explained here:
where it tells you to "Use the Apache 1.3.29 version if you need to use
third party modules that are not yet available as an Apache 2.0 module."

In general, I advise you to use 2.0 unless you have a specific reason to
choose 1.3.  The most common specific reason would be a legacy module that
has not been converted to the 2.0 API.
