Comanche supports 1.3

Also, I discovered (www.fresheat.net) that Webmin has now (2/5/98)
an Apache module for its HTML configuration interface that seems also quite
complete. I have given it a try and looks good. It is written in perl.
Maybe it could be suitable for your client.

I agree with you. Apache should ship with a good management tool. But I also
think that this tool should be complete, flexible and well documented.
Current projects are still in a very early stage of development to fulfill
these goals

Best regards
