Huh?  It shouldn't.  Currently, we process the configuration file twice
at startup, which we need to continue to do.  The problem right now is
that the first time we process the configuration file, we read the
configuration into the config tree.  Then we dump the tree, and re-read
the file.  All we need to do is make sure that we keep the tree in
memory and just walk it again.

The only problem we have is that there are some directives that aren't
stored in the tree, because we process them as soon as they are
encountered.  Those directives should just be stored in the config tree,
and we should mark them so that they are skipped when we walk the tree.
If we do that, than we will need to walk the tree three times on
startup.  Once to bootstrap the config, once to execute all of the
directives that we are supposed to execute when reading the tree, and
once to walk the rest of the tree.  This is because we clear the config
pool in between the two config file reads.
