You can test whether running under threaded env via:
#ifdef USE_ITHREADS /* whatever */ #endif
When the server is running under the threaded mpm
scfg->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->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).
