Very useful that this has been introduced - but I had presumed that it 
applies only to non-local addresses.

The httpd parent process needs to be able to make connections to the 
local address/ports to which the children are bound.  After a period of 
load, when there are idle children stuck in accept(), the parent will 
make a few connect()s to wake them up.

Can this policy be limited to non-local addresses? 

(the "child garbage collection" process is effectively broken-by-default 
at the moment)
