Apache binding

The apache binding is implemented as a shared module (mod_uno). One problem is, that the webserver does not support a httpsession notion. So the binding itself must do a http session adminstration, which is implemented as a UNO component and can be reused for futher bindings, where the webserver does also not support a session notion.

The common apache webserver runs in different modes on windows and on unix. This directly affects the binding and the runtime process layout, so they are explained differently here.

Future developments of the UNO framework will allow to customize the process layout by simply modifiying some entries within a UNO registry, the current level of customization is quite limited.
