Sounds Good

Is there any reason not to build a single loadable binary of the both

Cool (make that a single binary of all three modules?)

Now the rough stuff...

The hooks module always declares all hooks are exported from the core.
This is the current linkage.  That patch I got reamed over 'too many 
extra arguments' to the hook functions?  We -need- it now, or something 
like it.  mod_dav exports brand new hooks that are now a pain.

I'll throw up some proposal, if I can get it to build without revamping
the declare hooks args, and post up an ApacheModuleDAV (+fs?) tonight.
