Ok, so sander and I were just discussing the creation of an httpd-config
script, analogous to apr-config etc, which apxs or module developers could

Apxs could then shed a lot of code and become a program specifically to
build modules, rather than also having to be used to query build variables
and the myriad of other stuff it currently does.
