Apache major branch.

apache could be a metapackage which can really install apache22. To tell you the truth, one of the things that I never liked about pkgsrc is that I don't know whether shells/bash or shells/bash3 or whatever is the latest stable bash. I wish I could ALWAYS just pick the package without the version number to get the latest stable version.

That's at least how we started... I'd expect www/apache to give me the latest version, too. Making it a meta-package that pulls in the real version (if we HAVE to support more than one!) that makes sense to me.
