Which does not match with the current implementation:

You can change between enable / disable over the admin interface but not between
stopped / not stopped.
I do not bother what it is called, but I think we should have names for the 3
cases I described above. And we should be able to set the status bit
for 'enable/disable' 'stopped/not stopped' via the admin interface to be able
to do such things like a graceful shutdown of a worker or what had been called
a 'local worker' in mod_jk ages ago.
