And reintroduce more strcasecmps and fnmatches :-?  Let's drop handler and
leave nothing but handler_fn if you like.  Very deterministic.  It's bold,
it's brash, it's hip :)

Seriously, when on earth was it strictly associated with a modules name?
both mod_mmap_static and core registered for "*/*", and core got it if mmap
didn't have it (DECLINED.)  It's always been a hook.
