I agree strongly that 12.04 should offer Apache httpd 2.4 in the repos 
if not fully replacing 2.2 all of the new benefits of Apache httpd 2.4 
make it much more stable, leaner and "Precise" then Apache httpd 2.2 and 
I think this release being a LTS is aiming for offering the end-user the 
most "Precise" packages available.

I hope to run Ubuntu Server 12.04 come April and I hope Apache httpd 2.4 
ships with it to save me the trouble of bringing it to my instances in a 
different manner.
