Don't know, whether this is still relevant after a couple of weeks: yes,
the above is true, at least since a couple of versions of mod_jk.

Previously it tried to detect the MPM during build, but that was broken
for some platforms like AIX, so we thought it's safer to assume a
threaded environment by default, also allowing to switch between the
MPMs without recompilation of mod_jk.
