I like it. I was only planning to support this for protocol modules,
but I guess there's no real reason why this can't be done for the
others as well.

The only problem is that every module's status column then has to be
available for every connection, because the question of whether a
module is "used" or not during a connection is much more iffy when we
don't limit ourselves to protocol modules.

This would be needed even with support for just the protocol module.

How about an MPM-provided equivalent to ap_update_child_status()? This
would be slightly different though; it'd be called by any module
maintaining a status column, whenever it wants to update a field.
Then, we put control over how and when this information is passed in
the hands of the MPM where it belongs.
