If they have zombies that stay around longer than 1 or 2 seconds then
they're probably using apache 1.1.  Otherwise, uh who gives a ... ?  So
what if there's a zombie for a second or two.  Sheesh.  At that load
they'd likely see a bunch of zombies, especially if they were so lame as
to leave the MaxRequestsPerChild at 30.

Which I still maintain is such a lame setting, and I hate Solaris for
forcing us to leave it as default.
