I would implement any single-process MPM using a monitor process
like Windows has in 1.3. This would look like dexter with a single
child process. Any good reason not to?

If it's important to deal with the single-process case (and I have no
reason to suspect that it is ATM), then I guess the correct solution
would be to not destroy pconf until the last process/thread dies.
This feels like the right thing to do anyway.
