please simplify httpd command line

The "httpd" processes are launched with many -D options. Can't you arrange for
that stuff to come from config files instead of being on the command line?
The current situation is annoying, because when I do this:
ps auxww | grep X
I get three pages of hits, because so many words (and every capital letter!) are
present on the httpd command lines. Not to mention that the command lines are
each ~600 characters (~8 screen lines) long.
(I don't know if this is a Red Hat issue or an Apache issue, but I can't find
any bug reporting mechanism on apache.org, so I'm reporting it here. Please
pass it along if you deny responsibility.)
This is indeed a packaging issue rather than an Apache issue, and it is fixed in
the Apache 2.0 packages included in recent Red Hat Linux beta releases, where
Apache is executed simply as /usr/sbin/httpd.
The changes are rather fundamental to how we package Apache and Apache modules,
so it's not simple to back-port this to the 1.3 packages.
