I would only be looking to provide binaries of official mod_perl
releases. I hope that 2.0.7 will include support for httpd 2.4.x, but
until then my proposed binaries would only support 2.2.x. The point of
VC6 binaries was for better compatibility with ActivePerl, which is
built with VC6.

However, I'm unlikely to go ahead with this now anyway since there
seems to be little need for it. That's good news, really, since it
indicates that building mod_perl is not a difficult thing anyway :-)
