Actually, I was just about to ask about child_exit for unrelated reasons.
Somebody asked me what happened to child_exit... I was just about to tell
them that all they had to do was register a cleanup on pchild when I
realized that the pchild pointer is static to each individual MPM and I
can't figure out how to access it from a module. Is there some other pool
with a similar lifetime that should be used besides pchild?  Or is there
some way to get at pchild that I'm missing?
