ok, here's a first pass at just a small part - achieve the hook listing by
offering an apr_table_do()-esque iterator just for hooks.

the output of httpd -o (for hOok, I guess) looks something like this:

Registered Hooks:
    core.c (10)
  Open Logs
    prefork.c (10)
    core.c (-10)
    mod_log_config.c (10)
    mod_proxy.c (0)
    http_core.c (10)
    core.c (30)

where the number in parentheses is the (untranslated) APR_HOOK_* value.

this is obviously a work in progress (and perhaps ugly as well), so comments
on all aspects very, very welcome.  the next step would to make mod_info use
the new hook iterator and pull out the logic that was mostly stolen from
there.  but I'll wait for feedback on what I have so far before doing that,
as well as stuff like ap_hook_order_set() or somesuch :)
