Unfortunately, that really doesn't provide a lot of info. The reason I
implemented it (the 2 copies) was to account for things like how many
the _current_ process has handled since it's been alive. This is different
from the total number for that _slot_ in the scoreboard file. I think
the current implementation really reduces the amount of info that's
useful since it tracks the _current_ use and not the culmulative (sp)
use for that child, and that's what we are most interested in. The
info about the last connection is nice, but not as useful as a inside
look on the entire child activity.

If the group thinks the *last* info is useful, I would prefer adding
2 more longs to the scoreboard to hold _that_ info as well... But this
is a dangerous road to start down (making the scoreboard bigger) unless
we really think the info is useful. Personally, if I had to choose, I
would prefer the the way it was over this... it gives me more
