That's something a normal user would not customize, they already
know dynamic files are in logs/, so it seems like something we
should be able to leave pidfile in the mpm config.

As for user/group security, I'm sort of seeing your point, but
even that doesn't belong in this file if they have something
more sophisticated like perchild going on, with multiple user
and group directives per-context.

needs to know about.

If that means it's noted in two locations, they are subject
to change one without the other, and end up with inexplicable
configuration issues.
