I've discovered lately that a lot of people kill -9 their servers as a
matter of course, which wreaks havoc on anything that the server wants to
do at shutdown, of course.

I don't know why. Maybe there's some advice or scripts or something
floating around that tells people to stop Apache by kill -9ing
it. And I don't believe our docs ever say anything about how to stop
Apache, just start it.
