It has been ported to Apache2, and if you compile your own apache, even
tracks proxy servers. I believe it might eve be possible to write a
script to:

grab any new apache src rpms
run rpm2cpio over the src rpm(s)
apply appropriate patches to the spec file
add appropriate config options
build and install the rpm & DSO

Even w/o compiling your own apache, however, the module should allow you
to throttle bandwidth using a DSO installable from a .rpm.
