Simon (Spero)  and I have kicked around some ideas on this general area.
I think I believe that the best way to tackle Apache and HTTP-NG is with
MT support and a protocol-API.  I have a few programming cycles that I can 
donate to the cause but I know I can't do it alone.  I'm busy debugging a
SHTTP/SSL implementation for Apache using the Secure Web Toolkit, and it is
_messy_ to say the least.  I had to make major changes all in the core
It isn't pretty and the only reason I did it is to maybe learn how to do
a protocol interface the right way.  In any event, I'd like to work on
the protocol API with others if indeed this should come about.
