I imagine they're all based on the httpd24 development branch of
mod_perl, where the work to support httpd-2.4 is underway. I believe
it is largely complete on *nix, barring some test failures, but it
isn't currently working on Windows. I hope to get that fixed soon, and
then we can look at getting a 2.0.9 out with it in.
