Certainly the MPM (or maybe os/foo code) needs to be involved...

Doesn't the new function need to be done before we hit ap_mpm_run()?
If main() doesn't know what's going on then how would it work?

Maybe MPMs that want to support this need to define functions like

  is-server-running ("-k start" would use this)
  signal-server     ("-k restart|graceful|stop" would use this)

I guess I'm leaning toward having main() in control, as with Justin's
initial patch.
