Strictly speaking it is more complicated that my simple answer
indicates and I in part tried to suggest that there was more to it
than that. The main thrust of my simple answers was to make clear that
the loading occurs in the main Apache process and doesn't happen again
in the child processes but that they inherit the loaded module. But
