FWIW, I don't agree with that. ap_proxy_lb_workers() was
not and is not part of the public API for mod_proxy.
It was never declared as such. From what I can see, it
was added in mod_proxy.h simply because the original
patch wanted it defined in proxy_util.c but used in
mod_proxy.c and so added it to mod_proxy.h.

A case could be made for extern int PROXY_DECLARE_DATA proxy_lb_workers
which, upon 2nd and 3rd glance, should be re-added
and can be by simply renaming the confusingly-name
proxy_lb_workers pointer in scoreboard.c. I will do this
later on today.
