Sorry, the concern would be that while taking Apache off-line to work
on it I am unable to control the access by other clients... implication
that if someone was in the middle of a transaction against another of
the hosted 50+ projects when I pull the rug out from them, well I'm
a bit concerned that I'll likely need to recover that project in addition
to the one that I set out to recover and since I have no way of really
predicting which projects are being accessed I figured I'd end up forcing
a recovery of all... and likely have several frustrated clients.

Perhaps it's not just my configuration then, which issue# is this being
tracked under?
