So, absolutely no mechanism to populate the default config with the
info, status modules, etc?  I don't have an opinion yet.

Of course I agree with simplified .conf snippets, smaller default
server footprint, KISS directive complexity etc.

Provide a flag to ignore the new logic completely (enabling all built
modules for testers, devs etc).  It's a dogfood issue, I expect that
mod_proxy_balancer / slotmem won't be the only non-functioning junk
that accumulates in httpd once most devs never load 80% of the modules.

In fact, --enable-maintainer-mode should force-toggle this option.
