I tend to agree especially since I have it working. Changing to a 
wrapper approach means time that I don't really have. On the otherhand
porting the changes to every new version of Apache is taking time

I don't understand why a runtime option to enable this is not palatable
to the group. It's really no more dangerous than giving me the ablility
to forget to disable 'AllowOverides', or the ablitity to load binary modules.

I'm running in a chroot'ed environment (or soon will be). The added
overhead of exec'ing twice instead of once is unnecessary from my
point of view.

I'm in the process of setting up a new Solaris machine and will need
to address this issue sometime this weekend. It would be wonderful
to hear some other support for including this. Otherwise, I'll probably
take the other path of a wrapper.
