by "parent" I meant "apache parent", not just "that process that forked
other processes".

I thought about adding a -DFOREGROUND but I guess I convinced myself
that it was still just a replacement for -DNO_DETACH. Given this clear
use case I'm totally for -DNO_DETACH simply not calling apr_proc_detach()
(as before) and -DFOREGROUND calling apr_proc_detach() with the foreground
flag. Better to get it right now rather than later.
