You could, but AFAICS the only point of using a wrapper over using sudo would be to hard code
the -f parameter... In that case you would also need to prevent the user to change the configuration.
What would be the point of that?

I have opted for sudo. Designated Apache administrators are allowed to start/stop/create as
many instances of Apache they want to with the configurations of their choice. They are entrusted
with that privilege. Bottom line.
