Would it make you any happy to know that i've been running apache 2 for
about 4-6 months now?  Lots of very nice things have been put into it.
Sad that nearly every single "standard module" will have to be greatly
changed to truly take advantage of everything in it.

We (being myself and Gerard) were thinking about upgrading shadowfax to
it, but we haven't bothered quite yet.  Got quite a few other things we
are all working at.  But it is possible, and it has worked just fine on
my own laptop.. thou it's not like i get that kind of load that
shadowfax does ;)  Thou it is kinda nice having apache2 with mod_perl
and php.

As for the kernel team using 3..well, considering "most" distro's are
shipping 3 these days, i wouldn't be surprised if quite a few aren't.
Especially considering RH has been pushing it ever since 7.0.  But i'm
just guessing now.. not that i care that much either way.
