well, we had a special case where just about everything was handled by
a custom (threaded) apache module .. one process was just fine, and not
detaching allowed us to respawn directly via init ...

we've moved from -X to -DNO_DETACH, thou, so we can do graceful restarts
- those are completely disabled when -X is used, as this is mainly for
debugging .. might be a reason why it's not really in the helppage.
