   These issues might be all the more reason to give the logging/authentication
   management issues to the parent server.  Would it be possible for the
   parent to maintain a structure of information on each request that it
   hands to a child?

The question is, how to do this without turning the parent into a
bottleneck, given that there is no single portable shared-memory
mechanism (and that some things which claim in good faith to be Unix
don't support shared memory at all).

   It might balance the load between the jobs of the
   child and parent better.

I'd actually prefer to keep it unbalanced, in favor of the child ---
there's only one parent, and it only gets scheduled so often.  The
less it's involved in request handling, the better.
