I don't have strong feelings about it, but I do think that there will be
people who want to answer the question "What directives are provided by
MPM XXX?"  If the MPM pages are not comprehensive, then they will need to
go through the MPM pages, plus page through the entire mpm_common.

In addition, I assume that the MPM pages will eventually contain some
examples and other documentation which will reference the directives which
the MPM provides.  Therefore, it will be important to have links to those

In summary, I think that the indexes inside the MPM docs should be
comprehensive, but I think it is a good idea to add the mpm_common.html to
the index.  (I know, three indexes seems like a lot, but at least the
directives are only defined once.  If anything, the index at the top of
mpm_common.html could be eliminated.)
