I improved DESCR for these.  (In general, I think DESCR should contain
not only upstream's 3-sentence marketing blurb, but also hints about
usability and how to choose among multiple versions.)

Two questions come to mind:

  if the selected apache is not in the acceptable list, perhaps packages
  should just fail outright

  ap-modsecure seems old and therefore likely unmaintained by upstream.
  Should it remain?
