well, there is ap_cleanup_scoreboard.  But it seems to have two problems w.r.t.
non-graceful restart:

* it won't run on a restart with the pool change.  But code in the MPMs kills
the cleanup on non-graceful.  Will that make things break at shutdown time?
* for some period of time before the pool change, it wasn't always effective in
preventing the new generation from seeing old generation data, as you reported.

dunno.  Aren't you concerned about the Unix MPMs?  What would prevent
about-to-die old generation processes from writing into the scoreboard after it
is cleared?
