Bug#307701: unable to start apache2 from hand when NO_START=1

Package: apache2
Version: 2.0.54-2
Severity: wishlist

On my system I use thttpd for HTTP server as it fullfill my needs in
normal days. But sometimes I'm working on PHP projects at home so I need
to start Apache2 with PHP support.

I do "sudo /etc/init.d/thttpd stop" to hald thttpd server and I want to
be able to start Apache2 by "sudo /etc/init.d/apache2 start". But all
what I get is: 

Not starting apache2 - edit /etc/default/apache2 and change NO_START to be 0.

But when I change it to NO_START=0 then Apache2 will try to start during
boot which is what I dont want to happen (thttpd already listen on port

Changing it before and after work is an option but does it have to?
Other daemons can be switched off using /etc/default/* file and started
by hand...
