ah, cool.  I totally missed that.  thanks.

I think I have most of the --list-hooks stuff done already, if in a crude
form.  the debugging code in the module ends up looking like this:

[info] found module mod_unique_id.c scheduled for hook
[info] found module mod_setenvif.c scheduled for hook HookPostReadRequestHandler
[info] found module mod_perl.c scheduled for hook HookTransHandler

so it's just a matter of making it decent.  you mention having an option for
httpd, so that's a good place for me to start with this.  -h is taken, so
how about a -k (hooK) command line option that would give something like this

post-read request:


and so on.  it would need to be an option like configtest to get everything
I'd think.

cool.  I'm really intrigued by ben's last comment, the hook-listing API - if
anyone has some ideas wrt what the API ought to look like from a user
perspective it would be a help.  or I could just code something up and we
can take it from there :)
