Since to backport apache2.4 you need to backport (or at lease recompile)
_everything_ touching apache, including _any_ package providing
config-snippets (since some of the syntax of the apache-configuration
changed), I doubt there will ever be a backport of apache2.4 to Wheezy.

This already has been asked on the backports-users list and was denied
because of the points mentioned above.


Sigmentation fault. Core dumped.
