subject to implementation in mod_proxy_ajp.
I guess it depend on what we mean by "healthy"... We could
ping the socket and make sure there's a response at the network
stack layer, which would be protocol agnostic. Or, each
proxy module would need to implement some protocol specific

Furthermore I think some research
needs to be done about mod_proxy's current behaviour in this
situation. I guess this is important
to prevent things being twice in your basket :-).
Of course, there is a growing school of thought that questions
whether the whole AJP stuff itself is worthwhile... just
proxy HTTP and be done with it. :)
Anyway, I've done some testing and mod_proxy_ajp works at
least as well as mod_jk...
