On windows, you have no choice.  The mpm is always threaded (and was
even in 1.3).  This makes the warning above pretty absurd.  (Although,
in its defense, I'm sure the php people would point out that the big
problem with php and threaded servers are non-thread-safe libraries,
and the libraries people use on win32 are more likely be to be
thread-safe than the typical unix stuff.)
