Very slick!  Thank you for submitting this.

That's a thought, but it would 1. add weight to what should stay a very tiny
piece of code, and 2. anyone introducing a service would need to grok creating
their second httpd.server2.conf file, or intermixing two servers in the same
conf file (tricky.)

Hmmm.  Need to think about that.  Do we (ever) need to get the PID on winNT,
since we have the SCM?  Or is this just for information purposes?

I could read it just fine :)  Seriously, we tend to document bits that are
somewhat obscure, or counterintuitive.  Since anyone fiddling here is a win32
person, they should be able to read event loops.  There are some bits that
you could add about whys for folks not familiar with what's changed in the
taskbar operation, but we should be fine.

I've cleaned out the 4-char tabs (a definate no-no on new-httpd :) and just
changed whitespace for our coding style.  Other than that, it's ready to
commit, unless I hear an objection today :)  Attached is Mlladen's (cleaned) 
code, sans extra .ico and other binary files, for anyone's review.
