First, to -some- degree these sorts of decisions reflect bad
architecture.  We -should- have provided the hooks so that
no decision was necessary.  They indicate places where the
code will go nutty on a one-off sort of MPM.  All that said,
they are unavoidable questions today.

However, these all belong to the MPM itself.  The MPM needs
to communicate where you are [a stub parent .exe that won't
ever execute client requests, a real parent who's actions are
inheritable, etc.]  Keep your eye on the MPM design, and
also consider using pool data registered against the global
process pool to track if you have done some initialization
once before, between generations, etc.
