the concept is ok, but the implementation sucks.

you've just allowed arbitrary code to do such broken things as set
ap_daemons_min_free to be greater than ap_daemons_max_free... or lots of
other brokenness.

a more correct approach would be to call functions supplied by the MPM to
modify those parameters.

assuming the MPM you're referring to even has such a parameter ;)

this would fall naturally out of the XML RPC-type scoreboard i was
suggesting a while back :)
