The bummer is it's being kept around for all the forked processes. Would
it be better to use one of the other mpms (threaded?) so they share some of
this memory? I know nothing about apache, of course. The docs say some
modules aren't thread-safe...is mod_dav + svn?

What will be good settings here?
