Well, maybe I wasn't clear.  What I was say that from a standpoint of a
webmaster, UNIX administrator, and C programmer, I see a multithreaded
server as a very high priority as it should increase performance quite
a bit.  Now perhaps when I said "any feature...could be held" I was
vague in that the types of changes I was trying to reference were those
that would not be thread safe.  Those types of changes will just cause
two to three times more work since you would have to go back and make
it completely thread safe later.

Unless, of course, any changes that are applied for 1.2 are watched
closely for thread safeness; just for the sake of being easily included
into the 2.0 tree to make work on 2.0 that much easier.
