The new mod_interchange-1.30 will allow you to have a nice clean URI
for all of your pages without resorting to rewrite rules. Also,
because there are no rewrite rules to mess things up, everything will
work properly - including whatever UI functions you were referring to.
The Apache 2 API is completely different from 1.3. Also, the Apache-2
API-of-the-week seems to get re-written with every release, which
makes module stability and ongoing support a major issue. Well, that
was the case when I last looked at the Apache 2 API anyway.
Once the Apache 2 API stabilises, I'll be happy to write a new
mod_interchange-2 module. I will write it as soon as one of the
1. I actually find something in Apache 2 that I need, and that
Apache 1 doesn't have. This doesn't seem likely unless I
loose my mind and decide to install Apache on a Windows
2. All bug-fix and security update support for Apache 1 is dropped
and so everyone is forced to move to Apache 2. This will happen
3. Someone pays me to create mod_interchange-2.
