Don't recollect seeing it there (not that I'd necessarily have taken
any notice of it).

mod_proxy_fcgi is not really ready for primetime.  You should only
use it if you're expecting to hack/debug it, and preferably feed back
your experiences/fixes.

Reading what you've sent, it would be a useful bug report to
someone interested in mod_proxy_fcgi, *IF* that module had 
reached the stage where its expected to work (e.g. an alpha
test release).

As it stands, there's no great likelihood of that happening unless
someone makes it happen.  Since mod_fcgid has been donated
to apache, that's now the focus of fastcgi work among the devs.

My best suggestions:
(1) Enter a report in bugzilla
(2) If you really want proxy_fcgi and not mod_fcgid, tell us what
you need that the one offers but the other doesn't.
