Every multi-threaded MPM already does one thread per request.  Having two
or three different MPM's in the same binary seems like a support
nightmare, and a bit ludicrous to me.  Why would we want to do
this?  Manoj and I have been saying for months now that the prefork MPM
should be removed, because the mpmt_pthread mpm does simulate the prefork
MPM exactly with the right build flags, and that could be made run-time
