FWIW, here's my +1 for Incubatorship.  I see Lenya as tackling all the
problems that Forrest would eventually encounter, if we ignored the
blatant scope creep.  It would be very cool if Lenya and Forrest were
eventually two different 'profiles' of a common technology set.

I see what Steven means with:

But I don't understand why the usual Apache process wouldn't work.
Preserve the core architecture whenever possible, but if someone wants a
revolution, fine: there's nothing wrong with supporting both a legacy 1.x
and redesigned 2.x release.
