It is nice for ap_lingering_close() to be handled in the MPM.  It
shouldn't be too hard for the MPM to implement its own lingering close
in a manner that doesn't consume one thread per closing connection
(e.g., dedicate one thread per MPM to do all the lingering close
logic).  Of course there could always be another hook :)
