I'm not saying that we shouldn't include the perchild changes, I'm just
saying we shouldn't imply that by including them the perchild MPM is
any less experimental. In fact, I think we should go one step further
and create a server/mpm/experimental to put things like perchild,
leader-follower, door, and whatever else comes along.

I'm all for a message from the configure script, but I don't think that
it is obvious enough by itself.
