We have the exact same issue with mod_cache (mod_mem_cache/mod_disk_cache).  What do you
think about hiding the load of the protocol modules behind a config directive? Eg
ProxyRemote * would load underthe coveres all the protocol modules.  Similarly for
mod_cache: "EnableCache disk" would automagically load mod_disk_cache and "EnableCache
mem" would load mod_mem_cache. The directives are probably not right but hopefully I've
explained the idea well enough to give you the right idea...
