If some public-domain reference code could get out there in short order, 
this not be too hard to accomplish....

Make sure you coordinate with Rob H's "Fork-free" patch, as it sounds 
like that's a large part of that patch as well.  Most of us had just 
presumed that the core code would just be dumped when it's time to 
go multi-threaded, but hopefully a lot of the modules could be reused.

Word on the street is that someone is working on a java-based HTTP server 
which is already 10 times faster than netsite... shshshsh :)
