Definite +1.

I hear from time to time people saying that httpd is "big", but it  
turns out they're just loading a bunch of modules they didn't need  
when they started with a default config. It's particularly important  
for distros, where most/all modules are likely to be compiled in  
anyway, but the default config should remain lean.
