Jonas, is this strictly governed on the Apache side by the Listen 
directive? Since my apache 1.3 got installed on another path-set I guess 
this would make sense. It authenticates startup and shutdown with unique 
pid's per version since they've each been built to different paths, am I 
getting it, a little?

One question though, before I just go and try it. I have apache running 
right now, and I happen to know it's my 2.0 version cuz I'm the only one 
running apachectl around here, but when I type

Swami: ps -ax | grep httpd

I get

49545  ??  Ss     0:01.50 /usr/local/sbin/httpd -k start
49546  ??  I      0:00.06 /usr/local/sbin/httpd -k start
49547  ??  I      0:00.13 /usr/local/sbin/httpd -k start
49548  ??  I      0:00.04 /usr/local/sbin/httpd -k start
49549  ??  I      0:00.05 /usr/local/sbin/httpd -k start
49550  ??  I      0:00.04 /usr/local/sbin/httpd -k start
49558  ??  I      0:00.03 /usr/local/sbin/httpd -k start
49561  ??  I      0:00.15 /usr/local/sbin/httpd -k start

Now, if I start 1.3 w/o bringing down 2.0 first assuming I'd first changed 
the listen directive wouldn't I see twice the number of http daemons 
running with no way to know which was which? Maybe I'm thinking it wrong 
and don't need that kind of control.

When I think of it, my win xp workstation runs apache2 as well as the 
tomcat server and I guess that works the same way i.e. with tomcat 
listening on 8080 while apache listens on 80 if I recall correctly.
