I wouldn't like that. We would be removing possible parallelism (in a far far 
away future when we would be using this) at boot.

That sounds better.
Sounds to me that we assume the SQL server used is going to be on localhost. 
It's quite a strong assumption and a connection can always fail, so the 
application shouldn't crash.

The original email was talking about a manual restart of apache. I didn't try 
it myself but... does the apache server terminates because of a failed 
connection to a database from a web application running on apache itself?
_If_ this is the case, this behavior is absolutely wrong and should be 
considered a bug without trying to look for workarounds.
