Are you looking at my original or new patch?

I won't disagree, if you want apr_file_dup() to always return an uninherited
handle, that isn't a problem.  Just look in the which_dup == 1 logic of my
patch and change that block to always untoggle APR_INHERIT (and we
should also untoggle APR_FILE_NOCLOSE for apr_file_dup() results,
now that I think about it.)

Because we agreed that the API would support APR_FILE_NOCLOSE and
that is how apr_file_stderr_open() works.

>(and maybe in addition: Apache should be able to tell apr_proc_detach() to leave stderr
alone if it wants fd 2 to be unchanged across the detach)

Hmmm.  Interesting point, but I think that if we just respect the values
for APR_FILE_NOCLOSE and APR_INHERIT - as my most recent patch
suggests, that this problem should simply go away.
