What does "stable" mean to you?  For what it is worth, 2.4 is a 
production release of Apache HTTP Server: it is not a development 
version, it is not an alpha version, and it is not a beta version. 
People are using Apache HTTP Server 2.4 successfully in production. I 
have not heard any complaints about it failing to serve its intended 

As for workarounds, you could try to backport the feature from 2.4 to 
2.2, but I recommend against this, in general:  if you have to compile 
Apache HTTP Server from source, just compile an unmodified version of 
2.4 -- even counting the cost of learning about the new features and 
making some changes to your existing configuration, I think this will be 
much easier than backporting a feature to 2.2 and then supporting it 
yourself in-house long term.
