 	That's what should be the case.  As far as I know, httpd was not
 restarted every time I performed this test.  To help answer your question
 below, I cc'd the person who compile apache on w3.one.net.

 	As far as I know, the answer to all of these questions is No.  John?
 	The one thing of possible interest is the inclusion of php with
 apache.  The exact environment variable is:
 	SERVER_SOFTWARE: Apache/1.2.5 PHP/FI-2.0b12

 	Yes.  The central nfs server contains a raid5 array which allows /home
 to be nfs-mounted on w3.one.net, shell.one.net, and other user servers.
 (httpd runs on w3.one.net, I was logged in on shell.one.net.)  I do not know
 which version of nfsd each machine is running as it has been awhile since
 I administered them.

 	Ok.  Consider the suggestion dead.  ;)
