With my Tomcat hat on:

HTTP/2 support for mod_proxy_http
HTTP upgrade support for mod_proxy_ajp (we'll need to do work on the Tomcat side as well)
Improved WebSocket support in mod_proxy_wstunnel [1].

I'm happy to help out on the Tomcat side of things where required.


[1] The mod_wstunnel assumes (at least it did the last time I looked at it) that all requests
under a given URL space will be WebSocket requests. That doesn't seem to be the way many apps
are being implemented. It would be great if mod_proxy would allow both mod_proxy_[ajp|http]
and mod_proxy_wstunnel to be mapped to the same URL space with the 'right' one being selected
based on the request.
