cool.  just to keep up, new patches attached.

you'd need a way to direct requests directly to that specific thread,
though, right?  anyway, what kind of cool things?  I can see some advantage
to this oven in prefork, where you might want to dedicate a pool of children
to specific clients, but I don't really see the threaded advantages.  but I
generally don't get threaded environments anyway :)
