somewhat, but not entirely.  the things that concern me most are macros,
constants, subroutines, etc that exist only in later versions that somehow
creep into our codebase inadvertently, making it difficult or impossible to
compile or run mod_perl against older versions of httpd.  so, in that sense
getting httpd to compile so we can "test" against it is a good thing.

so, thanks for the link :)
