It's the most glaring omission.  =)

I think that is our best option at the farm level.  On platforms without
threads, this is as close as we can get it.  

I think the key thing with the farm is that the count variable is 
intended to be run in parallel not serial (unlike the count for a
urllist which is implicitly serial).  If we allow a farm to also
be run in serial, then a test that can simulate 10 users by creating 
10 threads on platform X, but simulates 1 user doing the same
thing 10x as long on platform Y isn't good.  So, yes, I think a farm 
must be run in parallel.  =-)  If that's not in the docs, then too 

FWIW, I'm going to be spending some time on the flood site/docs 
tomorrow and over the weekend.  Roy's added the subproject members
(you and jsachs) to httpd-site, so you should be able to commit
there now too.  -- justin
