Thanks. I missed that one.
I have not yet read the whole thing in detail (there is quite a lot), 
but scanning the keys, I do not see one corresponding to the 
"request.secret" attribute of the Tomcat AJP Connector.
Does that mean I can't use it for now with mod_proxy_ajp ?

Actually, the problem is one posed by someone on the Tomcat list.
The OP there was wondering how it would be possible to selectively 
allow/disallow some front-end Apache's from proxying to the Tomcat AJP 
port.  A RemoteAddressValve in Tomcat won't do, because it filters on 
the base of the original client address.
He is using mod_proxy_ajp at the Apache level.
Any idea ?
