He left on the One True Way of propogating httpd.conf changes:

	/etc/init.d/apache reload

I've emailled him. :-)

It certainly seems that the days of "pipeline of character streams
passing through filters" as the only level of component support that
UNIX has are well past. The fact that he's talking about Bonobo
configuration backends being written in Perl suggests that the
dependence upon X11 root-window resources for application/component
configuration (fine, fine Gnome feature) is not, in fact, representative
of things to come. This is a Good Thing.
