I think we shouldn't forget that we have MPMs - if we need to support a 
non mainstream platform, at the very least make sure that at least one 
functional and acceptable alternative MPM exists for that platform.

that see far greater but ultimately invisible deployment than the 
"traditional" public facing webserver does.
