Subject DO NOT REPLY [Bug 47447] Add possibility to use client IP as a value in RequestHeader (and Header, too, but this is almost meaningless)

Here's my problem with the RequestHeader hacks.  They are hacks.

We have a whole registration system to provide additional providers to %*
log formats, and no way to then expose those to other modules providing
%escape features like RequestHeader.  I had a solution for X-FF based on
picking one of these up, and lo and behold, there is no API in mod_log_config
to recover all the useful extensions added to logging.

The right way to fix this is to move the %escape registration from the
mod_log_config to the core, and let every module who wants to call out to
a new provider in the core which collects all available features.
