Thanks Julian!

This says we treat mod_dontdothat as though it was a core module
(subversion/mod_dontdothat): it is included in 'make apache-mod' (part
of 'make'), excluded from 'make tools' (part of 'make' too, as of 1.8),
included in 'make install-mods-shared' (and there's no
install-tools-mods-shared target, IIRC).

I think that's wrong. Those makefile targets are for core modules and
this one is only a tools/ module at this point. Specifically, including
mod_dontdothat in 'make install' (rather than 'make install-tools') may
create false user expectations: users who don't run "make install-tools"
except only core stuff to be installed, but mod_dontdothat is tools/ and
not core.

Cheers,

Daniel
