Yes, I see that option 2 is unreasonable. But option 1 works until we
can iron out the shmem stuff. This is not a major point in the design,
just a side effect. It is also not one of the problems being solved and so
should not impact whether people veto the work. If we don't save memory then
we are continuing to operate as we do now, no big deal. The redesign is not
to save memory, it is to allow mpms to operate reasonably when
max_requests_per_child is set to anything other than 0.
