You understood me wrong. These are FastCGI-processes. Only they are
managed by the webserver. You can, for example, specify that the FastCGI
process should be shutdown after 15 minutes idle-time. And then it will
start the process on the first request. It can also decide to run more
instances, when there are a lot of requests..
