Some more fishy stuff here at least with a reusable-addr generic worker.

IIUC The generic worker can never safely copy the
proxy_worker->cp->addr down into a a proxy_conn_rec, because the
proxy_worker only stores the addr and not the hostname that went into
it.  Both the URI and the ProxyRemote could be changing under the

We would need to store the host and port in the worker too, then make
conn->addr and conn->hostname allocated out of a new subpool for the
pair, since right now these things that can flip based on URI or
ProxyRemote are allocated out of the same thing as all of

Is keeping the generic worker reusable important?
