Thinking about it, a filename such as would be neat then
you could find the scoreboard file either for the address/port you're
interested in, or the PID because there are times you might want to
find the server based on either on or the other. You could ditch the file since it would be redundant. In fact replace it
by the scoreboard file.

Incidentally, httpd_monitor won't open my scoreboard file at all since
it has a rather interesting name of /tmp/htstatus.a000ul while the
process id is 3761 so I get the following error,

towy:~% ./httpd_monitor
Unable to open scoreboard file /tmp/htstatus.a03761 at ./httpd_monitor line 87.
