You're welcome, Joshua. :)

You could try persuading a core committer to add this as a
(semi-)official extension. Nick Kew reads this list, Paul Querna often

This question comes up often. In my experience the online
documentation is almost always outdated, incomplete or outright wrong.
I don't bother looking things up, I go straight to the source.

people that truly and deeply understand Apache. We can ask any hourly
rate we want!
