Because I thought that this will be able to account for additional parsing 
times when -k 'stop|graceful|restart' is called. As I've posted in another 
thread that didn't work. If it did you could make these judgements:

0 - first time
1 - apache now started
2+ - apache is either being restarted or shut down
