I think for the most part, we assume on all platforms that if a thread
exits for an unknown reason, the whole process will be going down.  The
only real reason for a thread to die unexpectedly, is a seg fault, and
that should take down the whole process.  The one OS I can think of where
this isn't true, is Linux, because threads and processes are equivalent.
And possibly OS/2, where I think we are trapping the SIGSEGV and just
terminating the offending thread.

All of this applies to Apache 2.0
