There are no required API changes; you should be able to drop in the trunk
version of mod_remoteip.c and it should just compiler. Or you can compile
the trunk module with apxs -c

There is one agreed/anticipated change, to enable PROXY protocol on a
remote client IP basis (e.g. enable for proxy machines' IPs but not for
other local traffic.) That should be the primary delta between what is in
trunk and what will ship in 2.4.

Other questions such as splitting this off into a mod_proxy_protocol module
are up in the air, and shouldn't affect the module behavior.

There are chances, but there is some disagreement over how/where (part
of remoteip or not is one dimension of it)
