I can't. As I told you, I don't care much about it, since in most scenarios
my web applications are 100% dynamic. From the look of it, the patch
shouldn't take more than 4/5 hours + testing, but I'd rather go out and find
a new job (since I lost mine yesterday) than do it :)

A month or two is probably fine... From the look of it it was supposed to
come out by Nov. 9th, but for sure we can't make it for then (J.F. Is on
vacation, and next week I'll have to start looking around).

Yes, the Apache 2.0 team ported the 1.3 module to the new web server, but
the build is kinda flaky since even in the last releases of Apache 2.0 APXS
is still broken... Maybe it would be easier to build it as a statically
compiled module...
