There is no reason to have as much duplicated code as the Unix MPMs
have.  I can remove most of the duplicated code, but that requires opening
up a lot of static variables.  The more duplicated code we have, the more
times we have to fix the same bug.

I am in the middle of fixing mpmt so that it doesn't require any of the
threads stuff.  That is an optimization though, and it can wait for a day
or two.
