Synopsis: MULTITHREADed code is not portable

The 1.3 threading code is an unfortunate mess in some regards.
Threading wasn't supposed to come into play until 2.0, but
Windows forced the issue because it is limited.  In theory,
most platforms (including Windows) could be done using
pthreads, but I wouldn't trust Windows that far.  The
model will be extended, likely with a good bit of redesign,
in 2.0.

There are currently no plans for such things in 1.3, and it
is getting a bit late for such changes in 1.3, but... we are
always willing to listen.  Best thing, if you can handle the volume,
is to join the development mailing list and raise the idea
for comment.  See the reference to the new-httpd list in
the ABOUT_APACHE file.
