AJP is an RPC protocol - the "binary encoding of http headers" doesn't 
buy us too much ( with coyote httpd ). Session stickiness is easy to add 
to mod_proxy, and I assume passing auth info is also possible.

If we only want to use ajp for forwarding - no back channel for config - 
then there is no point in using RPC and binary protocol.
