You can trigger a restart inside of httpd2 (a graceful)... which is an
optimal solution.  Even if mod_proxy_ajp doesn't immediately support it,
why not start with mod_jk?

We play lots of twisted games in mod_snmp to cause dynamic configuration,
recycle within the child, etc.  It -can- be done.

In any case, 2.4 is the next window, seeing the door close rather quickly
here on 2.2 httpd.
