Speaking as one of those maintainers, I hate to try to build against
experimental because it's difficult for me to build and test. I don't
have any systems that are installing Apache from experimental, and it's a
bit annoying to try to get all the pieces lined up properly (a pbuilder
with experimental packages, for instance). It's much, much easier to test
against unstable, and I already know that my package supports Apache 2.2
at the compilation level.
I can turn around a new upload for webauth within a day of seeing Apache
2.2 hit unstable.
