-1 for returning the string from this function.  It makes the function
harder to read and to use.  If you absolutely must have a way to query the
MPM name, then use a separate function for it.  Something like
ap_show_mpm() like Sander suggested yesterday.

I like this section.  I'll commit it today if I have the time to rip out
the string handling.
