Well, that's not entirely true. Robert Spiers is one of their

mod_authz_svn. We haven't seen any specific reports of problems from
Arthur yet, but hopefully I'll be able to convince him to do so.

Good point. I just felt that it was worth pointing out what issues
people are really running into when they try to use the software. It
seems that the speed issue is turning out to be the big one.
