It may be optional some day, most likely for Win32 at first, but we see
little value to it on most other platforms;  of course, we may be wrong.
I am also not sure if it is a big win on Apache either;  I think the
jury is still out on that one, hence the slow adoption of 2.X, and we
don't want to add threads and make a mess of the code or slow it down,
which does often happen.
