But extended status can also get bloated.  In addition to the extra overhead,
there's the problem of making the display readable.  Looking at
http://apache.org/server-status, I don't see where the server IP address and
port would fit comfortably in addition to what's already on the detail lines.  

A few possibilities come to mind:
*  stick the ip/port info in the scoreboard, but don't display it in
mod_status.  
*  provide a directive that lets you choose between seeing the vhost name or 
   server IP/port.  I doubt that many folks use both name based vhosts and IP 
   based vhosts.  Or make such a decision based on the existing vhost
directives.
*  provide format strings, like we do for the access logs. (seems like too much
work)
