+Subject: Mod_mono control panel
+Good morning, guys.  Hacking is a nice way to start the day.
+After upgrading to 1.0.6/1.1.4, I found that after I "killall mono" to 
+restart mod-mono-server, mod_mono no longer restarts mod-mono-server on 
+the next request.  I think this is by design, right?
+Since I rely on mod_mono to start mod-mono-server, I needed a way to 
+restart mod-mono-server without restarting all of Apache.  Rather that 
+writing a script to figure out what user/group mod-mono-server is 
+running under and what command line arguments to give it, I created a 
+really simple control panel within mod_mono.
+It creates a new Apache handler for mono-ctrl and displays an HTML 
+control panel page for requests it handles.  Following the one link on 
+the page causes mod_mono to terminate all mod-mono-servers it spawned 
+(exactly as in the normal termination process), and after terminating 
+each one and waiting one second it calls fork_mod_mono_server to restart it.
+To use it, add:
+<Location /mono/>
+   SetHandler mono-ctrl
+And add the appropriate access controls to prevent the world from being 
+able to restart your mod-mono-servers.
+I'm not sure if there are any memory management issues to be aware of 
+with forking the server a second time.  This might be a good place to 
+put in some status information, or reporting error messages if there are 
+permissions problems with the socket, etc.
+The patch is attached.  Comments?
