Joel, from a software stability assurance point of view your thoughts
on sticking with AOLserver 3.3+patches for OpenACS 5.0 make sense, but
in the long run we're all going to better off the faster we get
everyone onto AOLserver 4.0. And a lot of OpenACS 5.0 users are,
overall, going to find it easier to use AOLserver 4.0 than the older
version, not harder.
So if people are willing to update the necessary docs and config files
for in time, I'd OpenACS 5.0 should recommend and support
both versions of AOLserver, with the note that in the future
AOLserver 4.x will become the standard.
