Persuasive argument:

1.2 is going to have a very long shelf life. I am still unconvinced 
that threading is going to gain me anything significant and in 
reality will gain me greater headaches as I try to integrate DBMS
more closely.  Since getting away from Slowlaris and going to FreeBSD
servers, I rarely see a load over 0.05. I'm not really that hungry for

That said, I think it is high time to start on a friendly config interface.
Having the changes in 1.2 that Ben suggests would make it MUCH easier.
It's these issues exactly that stopped me at the point I am at with it.
It's changes like these that seem to continue to get pushed down the
road which is interfering with our original goal of the project.

Convinced? :)
