Thanks, I remembered activity on this and didn't remember if it was resolved.

No argument, but there are 1) minor quibbles with the apr-2 interface, and
2) some significant work to replace the original with the new interface, and
not sure who has cycles to attack this in the near term.  If it is fixed,
re-adding mod_session during 2.4.x cycle would be relatively painless, no?

Well, we might have to work out most of the mod_fcgid code space clearly
into the *private* domain.  No 'public headers' for example, but just
locking in the fastcgi behavior towards the client executables (with the
caveat emptor that this is subject to bug fixing).
