=head1 The Worker MPM

META: incomplete

You can test whether running under threaded env via: C<?>

  /* whatever */

When the server is running under the threaded mpm
C<scfg-E<gt>threaded_mpm> is set to true.


All per-server data is shared between threads, regardless of locking,
changing the value of something like ap_document_root changes it for
all threads.  Not just the current process/request, the way it was in
1.3.  So we can't really support modification of things like
ap_document_root at request time, unless the mpm is prefork.  we could
support modification of modperl per-server data by using
r-E<gt>request_config in the same way push_handlers et al is
implemented.  But it is not possible to use this approach for anything
outside of modperl (ap_document_root for example).
