No, but neither should you have to munge your config files
each time you change MPMs until you find the right fit.  *That*
is bogus.

Come up with a name for an entity capable of handling a request,
and use that name across MPMs and let them translate it into
the appropriate significance.  Yes, MPMs can have different
directives for non-portable concepts (as 'threads' means
something to pthreads and perchild, but not prefork), but use
a common name for project-wide common concepts.
