We tried that.  Basically ap_setup_listeners was added to remove duplicate
code from all of the mutli-process/multi-thread MPMs.  At the same time, I
tried to migrate all of the other MPMs over, but couldn't do it for
Windows or OS2, and didn't really have the time for
prefork.  ap_listen_open should be removed from all MPMs.
