SIGHUP should probably work as gentle restart, ultimately, but that's just
my belated HO. No error messages with SIGINT, just one of two results, as
further playing has shown:

1) silent server shutdown
2) server restart, with two additional children spawned each time.

I'm not using Listen on the servers I'm testing on.

This isn't urgent (like right now), Ben. I'm running the no keepalive for
Mozilla/2 version of 1.2-dev on one of the two machines I tested on, but
not the other. I've cobbled rotatelogs to accept a 0 arg for rotate
interval which means rotate once, right now. This also uses 0 as
the file extension so my rotate script can then compress and rotate all
the log files on the server, and the other automatic tools we use
still see the same filenames as before. We can still date the rotated log
files by the mtime.

I've got two boys to go amuse now, so I'll probably not be around 'till
later, myself.
