Begin another module to expose Apache, al la modperl, to the CLR, created
probably from scratch or borrowing on some of the other cross-language
Apache hosting projects such as Apache's tcl, modperl and similar efforts.
The mono project's ASP.NET implementation is distributed by them under
a separate package due to potential patent conflicts. This inhibits our ability
as a U.S. based organization to take special exception for binding to their
CLI implementation of the System.Web provider. Note we are a System.Web
consumer so these issues aren't relevant to our implementation against the
These issues should not affect efforts to implement the native Apache methods
and exposing them to the mono CLR, only the ASP.NET side of the world.
