I believe this was the design where I was working to split the scoreboard and
use linked lists to maintain processes and workers vs. Ryan's design of
allowing finer granularity control of process ownership within a fixed block
of workers.

I got side tracked from my patch by my father-in-laws passing away, and some
mod_perl support work. I am now back on this full time. I should have my
patch by the end of this week or early next. Then we can all compare the
two patches.

I'm glad you are back working on this, I was afraid I would have to implement
both sides for arguments sake. :)

On your mark...
