i need to modify several configurations to make mod_security
conditional and will give feedback as soon that has happened

is there any useful way in case of httpd-prefork to get an
strace showing what happens internally on non-debug builds?

maybe it's something obvious in the direction "why is B even
called after A"

however, control that by modsec gives you even the option to
select the status code without leak source code - if a module
can do that why not the core itself unconditional?
