I'll tweak threaded and worker to return "workers_may_exit" ASAP, and
wait for feedback on the naming.

I like this name best, but "server" bothers me some (someone might think
it refers to all of Apache).  How about:  ap_mpm_process_exiting()  
(same return spec as above)

not bad either, but I think one of the "exiting" names gets the point
across more directly.


p.s. my apologies if I caused any confusion.  I didn't realize there was
an existing callback directly into all the MPMs right where we need it.
