Hi Florian,

Thanks for your quick reply. One easy way to handle this is to have a
separate lighttpd plugin which will be similar to apache's plugin and will
handle lighttpd specific statistics, for instance, fastcgi statistics which
apache mod_status doesn't expose.

I will be happy to work on a separate lighttpd plugin if the separate plugin
for lighttpd gets a green signal.

The other approach would be to rename apache plugin to httpd plugin (as
someone has already suggested) and have two sub blocks as apache and
lighttpd (each of them will have have their separate configuration settings
e.g URL, CAcert and so on).

Which, according to you, is a better approach?
