Several problems with the patch so far:

1) your formatting is awfully wild. wtf is up with the APR_HOOK_LINK lines
   in request.c? your patch needs to observe the style guidelines

2) the hook should not take a request_rec. if you look at the scoreboard's
   implementation of the hook, it only uses r->pool. when you think about
   it: the hook responder does *not* care about the request that is being
   used to fetch this data. in fact, you might not even have one! consider a
   monitoring thread that some module started. it would periodically "reach
   in" and get status. it certainly does not have a request.
   thus, you should just pass a pool

3) forget the apr_table_t. use an apr_hash_t instead.
