In fact, if we put the snippets in the Apache package or some package 
which is tied to Apache versioning, we can drop all the <IfModule> 
stuff - Apache 2.2 packages would carry snippets that use Allow/Deny, 
Apache 2.4 packages would carry snippets that use Require. Packaged 
web apps can just include the appropriate snippet and not worry.
