  Fill out some docs for the MPMs.  The content is there, but the formatting
  could probably use some work.

  +<h2 align="center">Choosing an MPM</h2>
  +<p>MPMs must be chosen during configuration, and compiled into the server.
  +Compilers are capable of optimizing a lot of functions if threads are used,
  +but only if they know that threads are being used.  Because some MPMs use
  +threads on Unix and others don't, Apache will always perform better if the
  +MPM is chosen at configuration time and built into Apache.</p>
  +<p>To actually choose the desired MPM, use the argument --with-mpm=
  +<EM>NAME</EM> with the ./configure script.  <EM>NAME</EM> is the
name of 
  +the desired MPM.</p>
  +<p>Once the server has been compiled, it is possible to determine which
  +MPM was chosen by using <code>./httpd -l</code>.  This command will list
  +every module that is compiled into the server, including the MPM.</p>
