3. Currently connections are not checked if they are healthy *before* a request is send (something like mod_jk's connect_timeout, prepost_timeout). I think this would be nice to have, but I guess it is not easy to do this in a protocol independent way. So this might be only
   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
"ping/pong" test.

4. There is no match for mod_jk's recovery_options currently. 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...
