OK - can that be changed? I'd really much rather that apachectl, the
init script, and direct invocation of /usr/sbin/httpd all had the same
behaviour, as has been (mostly) the case forever.
For direct invocation of /usr/sbin/httpd; we can't have it both ways.
It has to either be confined or not confined. People seem to want it
unconfined so e.g. httpd -t can still print to the terminal.
