Right. It would be nice if we had one way to load a module, and another
way to enable it. This is the same debate as using <IfModule mod_ssl.c>
vs. <IfDefine SSL>.

+1 for removing the mod-status and mod-info sections from the default
config entirely. In an ideal world there would be no default config,
since the server defaults would allow simple serving of static pages.
Config parameters could then be added to extend or override the defaults,
and there would be one way to configure the server (and not two as we
have it now).
