No opinion...

Yes, I think it is kind of a mess and could use a bit of revamping.

I've been toying with the idea of a mod_http which would shift a bunch of
the HTTP handling outside of main/. For example, why is If-* header
processing done in http_protocol (ap_meets_conditions()), rather than as
part of the normal request steps done during request processing? Why is
there any authentication code in http_core? etc.

One of these days... :-)
