Parallel to that, apache24-devel would be obsoleted and replaced by apache24, which again would be the exact same port as the one it’s replacing. This would create suite of Apache ports similar to what we now have for MySQL, i.e. mysql51, mysql55, mysql56, etc.

I don't think there's a compelling need to keep apache22 around.

If there is, I think it's reasonable to have apache2 be the upstream recommended apache 2 (2.4.x)

I would just remove apache24-devel and upgrade the apache2 port to 2.4.x
