When there's a feature you don't really want for yourself, but which you
have to support for the user of module X, it's good to look for a way to
implement it wholly within module X, so that you don't pollute your core
with stuff only module X cares about.

Unfortunately, in this case I don't think there's any sane way to do
that. A well-behaved Apache module does not spawn off a timer process,
in my world. So we pollute our core a little bit. No big deal.
