Yeah I want to play a while longer, but I was tempted to start building
a tree in the 2.0 repository so that it's easier for folks to track what
I'm up to... I was going to mail to ask about it, but I got caught up in
other things.  I don't expect it to take me more than a couple weeks to
get pthread to a point where its reliability is about as good as win32.
(i.e.  to the point where we need to fix the rest of the known and
unknown threading problems)

process/single or process/inetd would be fine.  Actually I thought a
better name than process/multiprocess is process/prefork.
