That seems sensible, but I'm left wondering how many different naming
conventions we can fit on one directive line.  Perhaps bOmitPID instead ;-)
This really becomes harder to follow than the existing multiple-syntaxes.

Is there any reason not to name these mutexes in MixedCase?

Is there any reason we can't invert the arg order, so that we have

Mutex mutextype:name Resource [Resource ...] [OmitPid]

Of course, default could be assumed here.  So the above becomes

Mutex SysVSem
Mutex file:/mnt/sesscachedir SSLSessionCache OmitPid

(note the Resource tag can be the actual directive being mutexed, instead
of an alt-name).

Well, it's not strictly SSLMutex, but any other shared-resource that
requires cross process/cross machine mutexing.
