When httpd rereads its config files (on SIGHUP), it also *re*opens the
log files, meaning it needs permission to do so.  (Some sites, like mine,
rely on this behavior as part of their nighly log-rotation procedures).
Also, some changes to other config file settings can't take effect unless
the daemon is running as root when it rereads the config files.
