I think you are probably correct, but that would be a real shame. People
are looking for ways to get httpd-2.0 adopted by more people, subversion
is the one killer app that currently exists for 2.0. By moving subversion
to 2.1, you have just removed that killer app. This just proves that
httpd-2.0 wasn't ready for an API-freeze, and that it was imposed too
early instead of allowing the API to settle itself.
