Hmm.... But it might be a problem for PythonImport. PythonImport builds a
table a pointer to which is a global variable python_import. Then,
ChildInitHandler goes through that table and imports all the modules.

The reason PythonImport doesn't use the standard config stuff is that
ap_get_module_config() returns NULL inside a child init handler.

Am I taking the wrong apporach on this?
