I think it is entirely reasonable for the httpd v3.0 codebase to do this
as a goal:

- Be asynchronous throughout; while
- Supporting prefork as httpd does now; and
- Allow variable levels of event-driven-ness in between.

This gives us the option of prefork reliability, and event driven speed,
as required by the admin.
