There is nothing to gain from a multi-threaded server, and a lot of
complexity.

Reentrancy aside, there are other issues.  The quality of portable thread
implementations is one of them.

There is really very little data inside of cvs that would be shared thus
elmininating most of the benefits that a multithreaded server would get
you.

If you are concerned about high start up times, you could always do
something like apache prestarted servers, all blocked on accept.

Was is Pike who said something like "If you're using threads, your
processes are too fat?"
