Thbbbt.  You mean like the window that pops up the first time you run
galeon on a system as a given user, asking you if you want to import
your Netscape bookmarks?

And most people are expecting Apache 2.0 to supersede and replace Apache
1.x in their hosting environments.  Making more work for the many admins
who /don't/ want to run Apache 1.x and 2.0 side-by-side just because
they /can/ be run side-by-side doesn't make for a very enticing approach
to me.
