Yeah, but there are outstanding issues with threaded MPM that make me 
leery of recommending threaded for end-users until we resolve them.
Threaded MPM works, but there are some issues that I don't think can 
be resolved in the current code.  

The long-term alternative is the worker MPM - Aaron just submitted 
(and rbb committed) a patch that should go a long way to get worker 
MPM up.  I haven't had a chance to test it yet, but I will try to 
do so soon.  If you want to try out threads, you may want to try 
the worker MPM.  (God, these MPM names are wretched.)

Yeah.  On Linux, threads are equivalent to processes anyway, so it 
isn't a big deal.  Solaris is a different story though.

The post_config hook is probably your best bet.  -- justin
