Not specific to lbmethods but yes, one provider
of the basic set of 3-4 methods that right now eat up a lot of 64kb process
page mappings for no particular benefit.  The builder could even decide
are compiled-in to the base httpd.  We don't dismiss the loadable approach,
we simply decide this subset is effectively baked, and then use the loadable
lbmethod to extend yet another experimental/dynamic/evolving method, from
the ASF or third parties.
