Subject Re: Remove prefork MPM.
Date Tue, 25 Jul 2000 21:24:47 GMT
it's my opinion that the duplicated code is code that needs proper
modularization.  it's crap still around from the 1.x http_main.c and
hasn't been cleaned up yet.

... and that an emulated prefork is probably going to be more of a pain in
the ass to debug than a simple prefork.
