I'm not convinced this is a huge win.  On Solaris sure, where thread
creation time is fast and process creation time is slow.  But on linux?
Not likely.  process creation is fast, and thread creation is actually
the same operation.  What's freebsd's thread creation speed relative
to process creation?

It opens up more optimizations though.  But I'm doubting that IIS
implements any of them...

I get a new machine tomorrow to tinker with.  I'll start doing what
benchmarks I can.
