I've checked that before sending the patch and it looks like this option 
is not used by anything:

$ grep "NONTHREADED_OK" -R .
./lib/ModPerl/ 0    Using a non-threaded 
perl is okay with httpd >=2.3
./blib/lib/ModPerl/ 0    Using a 
non-threaded perl is okay with httpd >=2.3

I think we can remove that option, or if you like this name better, I 
can use it in my patch.
