Ack - however until apr_dso_load() supports the semantics, they
have nothing much to discuss :)

If mod_proxy exposes it's 'local symbols' via registered 
functions and hooks, this is a non-issue.

However, the parts of proxy which 'must' be exposed can become
a libproxyutil.so which is LoadFile'ed rather that LoadModule'ed,
and becomes more useful for everyone, including those apps not
loaded into httpd.
