I'll answer both questions in one reply -  Both are quite valid questions.

Jason: The httpd-mmn Requires: is to ensure that the module version matches that
of the Apache version you're going to install against. (Something one of the
more experienced packagers (Ville?) pointed out while I was working on mod_security)

Ralf: I called it mod_geoip to avoid potential confusion ("Where's/What is
mod_geoip1?) and ensure some level of clarity.

Upstream has different tarballs for Apache 1.3.x and 2.x, the latter is
mod_geoip2 but, given that FC doesn't package the older branch anyway, I went
for plain "mod_geoip" so even the most inebriated of users could guess what it
was for :-D.

As for a virtual property, I've never seen anyone package it elsewhere  - and if
they've called it mod_geoip they'll get cleanly upgraded anyway provided other
deps are met.

I'll import and build unless anyone has strong "blocker" objections to the name.
