Here's my plan:
- After the freeze I'll commit apache21 port (repocopied ~10 monthes
ago) to make some test on modules building, etc.
- Makefile.modules.3rd will be renamed to bsd.apache.mk
- all modules will be renamed in pkg-src way. i.e.
  ap-<module_name> for 1.3 modules
  ap2-<module_name> for 2.0.x
- Introduce support for 2.X > 2.0.x in bsd.apache.mk

As mat said, apache2 will be repocopied to apache20 when bsd.apache.mk
appears. Threaded MPM support will be discountinued for 4.x with
apache>2.1, since libc_r sucks ;).

I'd be happy if you can provide us a short list of incompatibilities
between apache2 and apache 2.1/2.2, so I can integrate these changes in
my plan quickly.
