OK, this is the point I have the question about. From what
I can see, mod_bmx_status creates bmx_status_bean, adds stuff
to it, and then prints it out.

But how does it get access to, for example, the beans created and
populated in mod_bmx_vhost? I understand that if you KNOW what
beans you are looking for, you can query them via mod_bmx, but
how do you know what beans have been added.

Right now, for example, we have a simple hook that mod_socache_redis
(for example) hooks into and once mod_status is done, it loops
through all registered hooks. But I don't see any similar type of
functionality in mod_bmx_status which allows mod_bmx_status to
reproduce the full status information that mod_status currently
does.

So yeah, other modules create their beans. Fine. But how
do those beans get "registered" in mod_bmx_status so that they
can actually be displayed?
