Synopsis: Affect of HUP on Child Processes Not Documented.

Apache forwards restart signals (HUP and USR1) to its
process group, so doing a `killall -HUP httpd` is reasonably
harmless. However, this is an unsupported implementation
detail and therefore subject to change -- it's completely
different in 2.0. You should not rely on it to work. If you
want to rotate the logs of apache-1.3 the best way is to
`kill -USR1` the parent process.
