yes, AS implemented ithreads and enable it in all their builds.  modperl 
would not let you build without ithreads on win32.

the interpreter is embedded in the server, so this concept wouldn't apply.
however, one very nice feature of win32 perl is that it relocates itself 
at runtime (adjusting @INC paths), you can simply configure
LoadFile c:/fooperl/bin/perl58.dll

and modperl will use that perl installation, provided it is binary 
compatible with the perl that was used to build modperl.
