You miss my point though.  Sure - we can invest 100% effort into simple,
and within months demonstrate that all other mpms are inferior.  At that
point we deprecate and make 'simple' the default.  Next release, svn rm
those ancient sources.  Great!

It just doesn't seem to be worth forcing this unless there is a measurable
benefit to cutting out or rearranging the mpm hooks.  And if there is, then
maybe they just need refactoring (?)

I'm all over the idea of calling all old mpm's retired.  Just didn't see a
reason to svn rm the code until 'simple' is proven in the wild.
