OK, I'll have a look shortly.

Sure -- I'd be happy with the Debian Apache team maintaining Debian's version
of mpm-itk. It was done this way originally because the Apache team didn't
want to carry around anything that upstream didn't feel like taking in
in a short timeframe. Obviously, if that's changed, I don't have any
objections either. (Ideally I'd like upstream to just take it in as a
supported MPM, but I've tried twice and it's just like hitting a wall.
Everybody has their own pet solution that works for their specific use case,
just like mpm-itk is my own pet solution that works for my own use case :-) )
