If you haven't seen it already, you might to have a look at
htdocs/manual/sourcereorg.html (in apachen). It includes some basic
information for module authors about how to use these new features, plus
references to the examples in mod_auth_db{m}.(c|module). The docs are
pretty basic so feedback on how to make them more useful to third-party
module authors would be appreciated...

And yes, you can create a definition file (mod_php.module) which includes
anything you need Configure to know about when it runs. 

Another module to look at is mod_status which shows how to use the current
value of a Rule from Configure to alter the cflags.
