Right, I guess I didn't really phrase my question the right way.
How would you determine this incompatibility if you are a DSO module trying 
run on Apache HTTP 2.0? Let say a module can only run on prefork, for

Just because the MPM name isn't an accurate discription of what the properties
are of an MPM doesn't mean it could not useful to know what the MPM name is?

We should also keep in mind 3rd party MPMs such as the SGI STM MPM which
might accurately describe the MPM by it's name, but it is an identifier that
could point to the origin of the  MPM.
