I think that depends on how many people use it.  I think that the reason
that Apache under NT isn't very good is because very few people use it.
The NT people use IIS instead.  

Of course, there aren't nearly as many AS/400's on the Internet as there
are Unix or NT machines, so I doubt that it will be as widely used.

On the other hand, if someone with really good knowledge does the port,
the AS/400 version could end up just as good as the Unix version.  Very
hard to say.

I doubt that it will ever support all of the various plugins that the Unix
version does, unless it reaches the point where its as widely used, which
seems unlikely.
