AIUI the main problem is that there aren't (or weren't) any CA servers
which did exactly what apache wanted.

in general, apache tends to be use distributed trust models to avoid
single points of failure. so, a CA would need to be secure and embody
some of the same qualities.

IIRC some folks started coding up a suitable application but i'm not
sure why it never made it into use. a major use case was going to be
managing client side certification for subversion access.

AIUI infrastructure has been working hard implementing LDAP but that's
just about completed. now might be a good time to ask them about the CA
project.
