Subject ExtendedStatus On as core directive in trunk?
Date Thu, 15 Jan 2009 14:38:49 GMT
It is currently necessary to load/protect mod_status so that some other  
module can use the extended status information in the scoreboard.  
mod_status is by far the most common use of the extended status.

The comment in mod_status explains the reason why it is a mod_status  

* command-related code. This is here to prevent use of ExtendedStatus
* without status_module included.
static const char *set_extended_status(cmd_parms *cmd, void *dummy, int arg)

I suspect that in the modern era this is one of the less harmful ways that  
users can shoot themselves in the foot by changing defaults ;)
