This sounds very Debianish. I haven't seen the same approach for any 
other package in Arch Linux. Please correct me if I am wrong though.

systemd which caused way more serious changes across the whole operating 
system was introduced very quickly. Apache is not a core component of 
the system. It's just some daemon, not everyone's using it, and it's 
independent of the other parts of the system. There may be even two 
versions of this package in the repo, just like for Python. What I think 
is we may still provide Apache 2.2, but Apache 2.4 should really be in 
the repo as soon as possible.

Kind regards,
Damian Nowak
