I don't understand why we need to declare this.

MPM allows you to have a win95/98 MPM, and a winnt mpm.  APR lets us treat
the two as different platforms.

Let the market decide -- if there is demand for a win95/98 apache (and I
think there is -- especially for laptop users trying to carry demos to
meetings) then someone will step up and do the work.

In the meanwhile, if there's demand for a better winnt version of apache
(and I'm sure there is) then someone will step up and write a better winnt
