A hook is provided for a module to perform some processing for 
coredump-ing signals, but the hook can't be used to prevent httpd from 
performing the usual sig_coredump work.

mod_whatkilledus is a module that uses that particular hook and 
understands when a request or connection is active.  There's info and a
