I'm +1 on the concept for this patch (I haven't reviewed the code).  I
think that the docs should say something like

<note>Setting <directive>ServerTokens</directive> to less than
<code>minimal</code> is not recommended because it makes it more
difficult to debug interoperational problems.</note>

And my +1 isn't very strong.  I have no problem with saying that this
small bit of advertising is the tiny price that you pay for using our
free software.  But just to make this never-ending issue go away, I'd
say put it in.
