I think that is exactly what this proposal is saying.  But at the same
time it is cleaning up apachectl and adding some useful functionality to
httpd.  As I've said, the current apachectl is over-complicated and the
split between apachectl and httpd is confusing to some people.  This
change would clear that up.
