	I would like to comment that Dean has missed another
point that wasnt brought up . The reason why MPM can satisfy 
the needs of many different models is that it is now generalised
to the point that any application can be supported with this .
Quite aside from a http server , with a little polishing and
extraction of http dependent code ,this framework could IMHO
support just about any application you can throw at it .

	So the result is that you now have a bootstrap / support
architecture that is far, far more than just a humble web server .

Cheers Mik Voase.
