You're right. This is something of a kludge.
I did it, following Brian Havard's thinking for OS/2.
It happens that it works... ;(

In theory. However...
I did this to both the proxy, and mod_dav. The common issue?
Both have submodules (mod_dav_fs for mod_dav, and proxy_connect,
proxy_ftp, and proxy_http for proxy) which are separate DSOs.
Now, as it stands, all DSOs pull in an exports file for the main
However, the submodules in proxy and dav require some of the functions
within the main modules (mostly those implemented by hooks - I would die
on proxy_hook_scheme_handler, for example).

I see only one other way to clean this up - generate a separate
exports file for any modules that have other modules depending on
them, and tack that exports file onto the main one for the
server. Unfortunately, I've tried this, and it doesn't work.

I am open to suggestions, however.
