Good to hear!

We may or may not ship the event MPM.  Our new release model has *all*
the code on trunk/.  Once the RM and community decide to 'release', we
will also consider dropping specific things.

I have no opinion on whether the event MPM is ready for GA.  I'd sure
like to see it shipped in our betas, however!  Any observations about
the MPM and specific performance hits I'm sure are appreciated.

Quite possibly - generic code is (almost) always a bit less performant.
But I was curious, are you saying httpd performs at 10% of your custom
proxy's thoroughput, or simply 10% slower?
