+1 to a new MPM on trunk. This gives it more time to settle and to stabilize
without disrupting current stuff. And if it is fast and stable it will certainly
cause the 'older' MPM to drop in userbase :-).
IMHO this would even open a path to 2.4.x provided that we do not need any other
non backportable changes to do this.
