Right, the cping/cpong is a missing feature.
I didn't implement it initially because it existed only
for ajp protocol, so a common mechanism should be used
perhaps a socket liveness test on ftp/http and standard
cping/cpong messages on ajp.

As we (hopefully) add more protocols into the proxy
framework, we will run into more and more cases
where there are some things that simply can't be
"generic" enough to avoid protocol specific items...
I'm looking at some sort of provider interface
for that.

The balancer misses few features from mod_jk that would
be great to have, like hot standby and a new bybussines
lb method.

These are expected to be added in soonish :)
