Hi -

Sorry to butt-in here, but being the stickler for 1.3.x that I am, I'm 
always interested in hearing the argument of others where they may say 
that upgrading is not an option, just to get some additional insight.

Since I know someone else will probably be asking later on, I'll just go 
ahead and ask myself - why have you not mentioned considering Apache 2+?

William is most definitely right about moving forward with the 2+ 
releases, and not paying much attention to 1.3.  This was one of my main 
reasons for upgrading to 2.x entirely with my systems.
