I would still prefer to have some separation between -itk and the 
rest. But the source package split causes a lot of hassle for the 
release and security teams, which I now think outweighs the positive 
aspects of the separation. We will just have to make very clear in the 
description of the binary pacakge that it is not an official MPM.

If I find the time, I will merge the packages with the next apache2 
upload (unless you want to do it). I have added you to pkg-apache and 
I still expect you to deal with -itk specific bugs in any case (but 
there don't seem to be many).
