-X should only create two threads: the manager thread and a single
worker thread.  However, IIRC, it'll create ThreadsPerChild for that
one process.  It should limit itself to just one worker thread.  

By limiting us to two httpd-created threads, it should be somewhat
easier for the debugger/user to determine which thread they should
attach to.  IMHO, the current solution of creating one process with
a normal amount of workers isn't very nice.  -- justin
