As you likely know, the origins of slotmem grew out of the httpd-proxy-scoreboard
branch (~5.5 years ago) and I assume jfclere had reasons for his choice
for how to setup naming of paths, etc... But that is water under the
bridge; if we wish to fix that then instead of throwing insults hither and
yon, a really good idea would be to make the suggestion that it be
fixed based on history/consistency/etc...

I see that Graham has suggested a course of action, and I +1'ed
it; if Graham lacks the time, I will find some cycles to address
and implement.
