Worse yet - how do we know that the handler is for mod_status,
when the handler isn't set in translate names?

SetHandler/Alias is really showing it's age.  JKMount works because
the JKMount directive is handled in the translate_name hook.

SetHandler can't accomplish this.

Perhaps a LocationMountHandler {handlername} would work, as a 'generic'
method.  But do we want to force each module to do so?

I honestly believe that Unsetting the DocumentRoot is simpler.  It still
might be overridden (causing 'extra' stats) because of a mod_rewrite or
other directory mapping, but this makes life somewhat easier.
