How does Apache run as a service? Is this an Apache or APR issue? :-)

That's what I want (create a Windows service) and I've found several
links on the 'net on how to do it.

Yes, and the firedaemon and several other wrappers has been presented
many times on this and the dev list.

I will avoid wrappers if possible and if a wrapper must be used, then I
want to use a home growned one and if that takes to much time..

..then I will probably use a wrapper like firedaemon or some of the other
solutions that can be downloaded from the 'net during installation with
the Windows installer.
