My problem with the name, is that it requires chaning the API or adding a
new API to deal with a string.  I would prefer to not modify the API
unless we need to now.  Not that I am dead-set against changing the API, I
just want a good reason before we do so.  I don't believe that allowing
modules to query the name of the MPM is a good reason.  IMHO, the correct
way for somebody to get the name of the MPM, is to use the ServerString.
