This is solution that works. 

However, I also miss still a protocol field in the
server_rec. If Apache can support multiple protocol
via protocol modules it is my opinion that each
server ('server_rec') needs to know which protocol
it serves.
This could be fixed by just adding an integer that
provides the well-known port as protocol identification.
The current 'port'-field in the server_rec is not
sufficient, since it provide the port to which it is
connected. When the standard HTTP-port (80) is used
the match to the protocol is perfect, but it is not
if I use port 8888 for the HTTP-port.
