I think it's less a trimming and more a reorganisation.

The proxy module is made up of some useful bits that could be even more
useful if it were possible to use them elsewhere. The caching code for
example could replace the functionality provided by mod_mmap_static,
providing a full blown cache for all requests, including normal
filesystem requests as well as remote requests. An available HTTP client
library would also be really useful, and would make patching in HTTPS
support behind a proxy a lot easier (if designed correctly).

I wouldn't mind stepping forward to help on some of this stuff, however
I have not yet hacked inside v2.0 yet. If you need someone to test any
of the code, I can give it a bash.
