I think a SoC project that profiles Apache (and finds out where we fall short)
so that we are able to compete with other lightweight HTTP servers popping up
these days would be a good endeavor for any CS student.

This seems to be more viable for our threaded MPMs. For the prefork 
MPM, maybe a
goal for 10,000 connections might be impractical.

I haven't done any benchmarks myself, I've just read results so anyone correct
me if I'm wrong.
