I would think you want to provide the actual name as well, on top of
the properties. This probably could be listed just as APACHE_MPM_DIR which
it could query the properties from the actual MPM via a common interface.
Everything found in -V should be used for monitoring/logging.

What happens when you have incompatibility on a particular platform with
a MPM? It shouldn't just segfault, there should be a way to exit cleanly
explaining why this particular module or piece of code can not run with
the MPM used and the platform.

The more accurate information you have in the noc the better. Why monitor
if you do not know what you are monitoring?
