FWIW, my intention in adding the -k feature was that the startssl
would only be handled by apachectl - not by httpd itself.  For
startssl, apachectl would send in '-k start -DSSL'.  I don't
think it makes sense for httpd to recognize start-ssl (or its
variants).  That's something that apachectl can handle.  The
idea behind adding the -k feature to httpd on all platforms was
that the start code was abstracted out of apachectl - not to
support oddball invocation arguments.   -- justin
