Nooo! Check out the httpd24threading branch and give *that* a whirl!!!
*That*'s the one that I think we should merge into trunk when we're
happy with it, and if I read Jeff's latest post correctly then things
are better than I thought -- it looks like the Require line parsing
problem isn't actually a problem at all right now, and won't be until
such time as PerlAddAuthzProvider is updated to allow an optional 2nd
handler. So I think we can at least punt that issue into the future
for now, and worry about it if/when PerlAddAuthzProvider is enhanced.
