How should situtaions where the distfile differs for apache1/2 beeing 
handled ? For example mod_python uses 2.7.x for apache 1.3 and 3.0.x for 
apache2. But, 3.x is a "real" 3.x, AFAIK there will be no new 2.7.x.
Would it be better to not change our www/ap-python and add an ap2-python 
(or ap-python3) or change ap-python to pick up the DISTFILE according to 
the apache version being installed?
