Mod_interchange is still being maintained, yes.

The general idea behind the module is to avoid the overhead of
having to fork and exec a CGI script/executable for every page
request.  A nice side effect of this is that your pages get a
shorter URI.

Various features have been added to the module over its lifetime,
such as server failover support, request retries and further URI
cleanups etc.

You'll find that the latest version (1.30 at this time) is supplied
with the current Interchange 5.1.0 beta release.  You'll also find
it in the downloads section of my Interchange resources website:
