No, mpm_winnt does not support a multi-process model.  It can be
configured only with one processes and a fixed number of threads.
Imitating the prefork model on windows does not really make sense
since processes are so expensive compared to threads on that platform.
 There have  been discussions of worker-like models on windows, but I
don't know of any working code.
