There is a great value in allowing arbitrary modules to be able to specify a 
more granular representation of the processing phase.  'G' and 'P' sound great 
when we're talking about a chummy set of Apache modules, but it will get 
confusing if all sorts of modules get into the act.

Maybe arbitrary modules could be allowed to update another piece of scoreboard 
memory for formatting in the extendedstatus table?  Storing the module index 
(to display module name) and a two-char code specified by the module would be nice.
