I totally agree!
Let me give an example:
using the squid proxy over all the years I've just decided to have a
look into Apache's proxy module since I may have more Windoz customers
this year who can live with that cache - and it's not all that exciting
to install cygwin and running squid on a win box, works, was tested,
some problems with Wins (DNS).
Looking into the doc for mod_proxy I was really missing something like
on the php-sites,
examples of users, how they experience this module.
Even I wasn't sure for some minutes what port I should/can use
(use your webbrowser's search function looking for port on the site <:).
the best configuration examples finally I've found within my Apache book
(Lars Eilebrecht)
But not everybody has in every situation a good book in the hand :-
the idea of letting Apache users adding comments like on the php-site is
simply great!
