I hate this stuff.

I'll try.
we're looking into using 2.0 for our new web site (which should launch 
in ~6 months)
providing we get the OK from up above (their a bit worried about support 
and being
guinea pigs, for good reason) we should have a couple of developers 
working on 2.0 modules
in the near future. (The developers, unlike me, have been developing 1.3 
modules for a long time)

One of the features we need is the reverse proxy, with the additonal 
feature of passing cookies back from the
app server to the client.

as an aside, is anyone looking at win32 & proxy ?
(from CVS code pulled on friday) It looks conn->remote_addr is not being 
set  in ap_new_connection  (when called from ap_proxy_http_handler)
causing it to GPF. It looks like maybe the pool is not correct.

I'm very new at 2.0, so I'm not sure what a pool is ;-).. but that will 
be fixed soon.

Oh .. I built it on 2 machines, so I don't think it is my compile ....
