Yes, and this is known to cause problems.  E.g., more than one 
module was broken due to init_process callback being called in 
cache manager/loader processes which are quite different from 
worker processes.

No, but it is something we may consider.

In any case, I don't think that adding calls to worker-related 
stuff is a good idea, at least without a thoughtful analysis of 
possible side effects.
