Sure, Bill. Love to have your feedback on this and make it work for mod_ftp, too.

in mod_http2:
> 1. Initialization of slave connections

if the connection state is either not there or the same as master (pointer copy). It then
sets up a new cs using the slave connection pool.
> 2. Initialization of server config
>    event keeps in its private connection state parts the server configuration (queues
for timeouts and keepalives) that are unique to each server because of Timeout and KeepAliveTimeout
settings. Normally, theses are set on post_read_request hooks which is fine and well. On master
connections however, these hooks may never get called so the server config remains stuck on
the connections base server.
>    In the case of SNI however, we know which server this connection is intended for and
should use its Timeouts. This is done by installing an early protocol_switch hook that sees
connections updates and server_rec and initializes its connection state accordingly.

moral backup...
