I'd prefer if there was a way to ask the server itself through an HTTP
request for statistics.  For a constantly-running daemon that could be a
keep-alive request (if we want to bother making it HTTP-compliant, which we
really don't - "GET /stats APACHETP/1.0" :), at the expense of one child
being consumed in the process.  And then someone has to write the Java app
which talks to the server...

Actually I was thinking earlier today that Apache has become the Emacs of 
web servers (just tons and tons of options), or maybe the Perl of web 
servers (where everything can be acomplished in 3 or 4 ways, at least).  
Actually, when we do mod_eliza then I'll be more confident in the Emacs
