I need to go through the apache 1.3 bug list at some point - now that I have
pretty stable packages that survive the autobuilding experience I think the
time is right - and work out which bugs will still apply to apache2.
(hopefully, not too many)

I agree that this would be nice - but the main problem is that all modules
will need to be ported to apache2 - it's not just a case of a recompile. 
We'll need to keep an apache1 package around even after apache2 becomes the
main apache package, I guess.
It really only starts being viable to move to apache2 after both modperl and
php have stable releases that work with apache2 and that hasn't happened
