Not really the performance, but rather the fact of doing a lock
acquisition and release during creation time strikes me the
wrong way.  I'd prefer that the caller indicate that it is okay
to do that if we must (and the accept mutex in httpd can flag 
this).  But, I'm not going to be a stickler about this because
to do it my way would mean modifying the API.  -- justin
