With this patch, we now implement RFC2428, which was my only hesitation
to at least throwing out an alpha release for users to experiment with.
However it does need a bit of love in the proxy IP comparisons to tolerate
the more bizzare aspects of IPV6_MAPPED_IPV4 addresses, and perhaps decode
the ::n.n.n.n form into a pure ipv6 form for proxy IP comparison.

There are some remaining build questions, such as how to make it simpler
to build/install from the /top level/ of the package but still using
apxs for simplicity (instead of descending into modules/ftp and invoking
make -f Makefile.apxs there); as well we need to ensure it plugs in very
smoothly if they want to simply unpack on top of httpd, without reinvoking
buildconf, of course.

But does anyone have other concerns before we prepare to release a first
alpha version here of the module?
