That's true, and I could just copy apachectl twice, configure both 
and then hope nothing changes, but it disturbs me to copy something 
out of the distribution and then not update it.  If someone fixes a 
bug or changes a parameter, I wont pick up the change.

httpd -k [stop,start,restart] appears to be a new feature of 2.x. 
It's not in 1.3 as far as I can see.

It just seems to me that apachectl taking parameters is better than 
having to modify apachectl, but I guess there wont likely be many 
changes to 1.3 that would affect apachectl, and from the looks of it, 
apachectl is no longer really needed under 2.x, just use httpd -k 
directly, so I guess I just live with the issue until I upgrade to 
2.x, and then switch to httpd instead of apachectl.
