	I think MT offers big performance improvements in certain
situations, but not in others. Large files being sent to modem users,
packet lossage because of MCI (grrr, MCI hosage -- yesterday I had 100
running httpd processes on a 400khits/day server), and sites which
actually fill entire DS3 circuits take advantage of MT servers, I
think. If the benchmark doesn't simulate those situations, then I
think you don't see it.

	That's my guess, at least.
