Egads, no wonder they got such horrible performance.  Worker (or event,
maybe) seems to be the best way to go, at least based on our testing.
People who do performance "benchmarks" on Linux with default config and
prefork are careless at best.    We run a fairly "full featured" config, but
try to be smart about it.  We run internal benchmarks often and collect a
lot of performance statistics from live traffic (response times, etc.)  We
also, however, do not run any vendor supplied httpd build, either.
RedHat's, for example, is not for production websites, IMO.
