the value, if the directive is omitted.
(but we could consider to change the default in mpm_netware.c, if 2048 is 
too high in almost all cases (i.e. as a *default* value) and 250 is

ah, hmm. CGIMapExtension is currently listed there, but documented in core.

I see some ways to handle it:

- put arch-specific directives into core.xml (CGIMapExtension, 
SecureListen, ScriptInterpreterSource, BS2000Account).

- introduce docs for the architecture modules (mod_win32, mod_netware, 
mod_nw_ssl). BS2000Account would be kept in mpm_common that way (or core?).

- put all arch specific the stuff to the mpm docs

I think, I'd prefer the second.

there's a third, optional parameter. What does it do?
