IMHO, it is incredibly important to get a decent Apache 2.0 threaded MPM beta out that
people can begin to use.  It doesn't have to be perfect, it doesn't have to have every
function implemented in the most desired way. It needs to be "good enough" for a beta;
good enough for folks to use it in serious applications and begin giving the committers
feedback on what is good and what must be fixed. The only feedback we are getting now is
squat. And lots of it. Because our last beta was in March.

There are a lot of problems waiting to be discovered in the code (other than the ones we
already know about). The longer we sit on what we have, the longer those problems will
remain hidden.
