Yes, some work has begun. Dean Gaudet has created a prototype
multi-threaded version of Apache, using Netscape's NSPR package to provide
threading and IO services. Last time I checked, it was working fairly
well. Dean would be the one to ask, but unfortunately, he's in the middle
of a desert right now, so he probably won't be able to respond until
Tuesday or so.

The Apache Group's current thoughts are to use his work as a basis for
Apache 2.0, but we're still in the early planning stages of that release,
and certainly new ideas are welcome.
