ap_proxy_http_handler() is found in mod_proxy_http, which is the helper 
module that handles the HTTP protocol in the proxy framework. You will 
find a corresponding ap_proxy_ftp_handler() inside mod_proxy_ftp. 
mod_proxy tries each handler in turn until one of the handlers says "I 
can serve this URL, I'll take it".

ap_proxy_http_handler() will return DECLINED if the URL of the backend 
is not http: or https:, allowing mod_proxy_ftp, mod_proxy_connect or a 
potential mod_proxy_ajp to have a go at trying serve the URL.
