Further, these provide no interface to support arbitrary SSL TLVs
(that is, something like "$proxy_protocol_tlv_ssl_0x10").

Overall, I tend to think it would be much easier / less intrusive
to keep all the TLV handling logic in the
src/core/ngx_proxy_protocol.c, including both arbitrary TLVs with
hexadecimal type and known named TLVs, and only provide a single
prefix variable in stream / http modules.

That is, use "$proxy_protocol_tlv_" prefix variable and call a
function to obtain TLV with the rest of the variable name.

This might imply slightly more complex/less efficient name parsing
logic for known TLVs, but I don't think it will be noticeable. On
the other hand, it will reduce clutter in the variables hash, and
therefore will save some resources in configurations where these
variables are not used.
