I'd prefer to be dependent on the official Apache distro that we use.

Yes!  I would welcome help on this.  I also wonder if we can talk to Amazon about hosting
that data publicly so that we don't have to pay for it.  Either that or maybe we could ask
the ASF for some small budget to do so.  

Any insight from those w/ more experience would be greatly appreciated.  I can talk to the
Amazon contact who runs the Apache donation project.
