I did something similar. As you say, I had to walk through the servers
in both hooks. I can lookup up the code tomorrow if you want.

I do not know the pool_userdata trick. What I did was to
apr_pool_cleanup_register a callback on the config pool that undid
what the post_config callback did. The config pool is cleaned up
between the two invocations of the post_config callback.
