I you add your own methods, and still want the Apache HTTP protocol
doing work on your requests, you have to at least teach the core of
apache to tolerate the new methods.

If you just add your own request headers, you only have to deal with
your own module.

if you don't want any of the HTTP processing of Apache, see protocol
modules such as mod_ftp. would be the best list to discuss this on.
