One thing that I seem to recall is that we've talked about taking
the apachectl functionality and moving it into httpd (the C
program that is - not renaming apachectl as httpd).  So, you can do:

httpd -k start
httpd -k stop
httpd -k graceful

(ISTR that -k was the option in Win32 and for various reasons, we
wanted to use that to indicate the command to run.)

Is there any reason that httpd couldn't read/parse/source envvars
file itself?  That sort of sucks, but perhaps that's a way to
get around this?  -- justin
