Yea, please post when you are done!  My gut feeling is that threaded APR
is just awful at pool allocation right now.  =)  If we use SMS, it'd be 
nice to have some way of knowing whether we are faster than what we 
have now.  Baselines (no matter how sucky) are good to have before
embarking on such a change.  I wonder how the SMS stuff will mix with a
prefork MPM - which never needed locking in the first place.  Be worth
checking out.  -- justin
