Compatibility is not an issue for my setup. I'm thinking that to get this
into the next apache release, breaking older setups might be a problem. But
I remember when the command line options changed in a non-reverse-compatible
way, and people were okay with that because it was for the better.

We agree that we want this changed. I wonder if any others like this idea.
It would be nice to hear from any others...

Anyone want to write a patch for this? Alas, I'm too busy right now.
