That's the hassle.  Plus, you lose some 'plugability' in terms of choosing 
alternate
schemes.

I expect a warning message that "No proxy agents are loaded" is probably
more useful, ultimately, than attempting to co-load the modules.

The question is, how to determine?  Look for modules named "mod_proxy_*"?
I believe it's probably better to check that some other modules register 
themselves
against the appropriate proxy hooks or optional functions, so we pick up future
replacement modules for the agents without fighting namespace collisions
(modules that -look- like proxy agent names, but aren't, and modules that
don't appear to be agents, but are.)
