I'll check if I can reuse that.

We are talking _apache_ modules true?
They extends the _apache_ server, so one writing one should be familiar
with the .conf I think.
In theory some functionality could be reused on other servers like
authentication, and I'm not sure I want to do that, but you never know
:)

I'll try to work-out something this week.
For start I'd like to reorganize the mod_jk2 by putting needed includes
in the jk_apache2.h and adding
external module AP_MODULE_DECLARE_DATA jk2_module in it.
If that's ok with you.
The reason for that is that I would like to put the extended
functionality in the separate file.
