Better than calling names would be a suggestion of how nos. 2&3
could be made more intuitive for the first time visitor, e.g. "includes
modules for Apache 2.0 and 2.2 resp.". Of course this would cost
a little bit more bandwidth for the newbies who haven't bookmarked
the real download page yet.

Freedom quote:

     It's time we asked ourselves if we still know the freedoms
     intended for us by the Founding Fathers.
     James Madison said, 'We base all our experiments
     on the capacity of mankind for self-government.'
     This idea that government was beholden to the people,
     that it had no other source of power,
     is still the newest, most unique idea
     in all the long history of man's relation to man.
