I'm going to upload a revised mod_status.c later tonight. So far, that's
all I've dinked with, not the status gathering code elsewhere in Apache.
It's a rough cut for review, and it basically just reformats the existing
status data in table form. Two things I've noticed so far:

r->args doesn't seem to contain the full data set, just the first item.
I tried the original parse code and my own, neither seems to work.
I'd think it should be possible to say

or something similar.

I'll need to put in my own difftime() function; the compiled server grew
by about 33k when I added that. I'm also not sure all OSs support it.

Formatting needs a little work, and then I can fold in the nice things
Rob and Brian want, along with the stuff that Robert Thau, David, Mark and
I discussed awhile back. There's also some code cleanup done.
