Being able to run multi-threaded svnserve on Unix is the reason I
wrote the patch! Most of the Unix testing takes place using multiple
single-threaded processes, to do any multi-threaded testing one needs
to configure Apache with a threaded MPM and then separate the Apache
performance from the Subversion performance.

While writing it I discovered that it is relatively easy to debug a
threaded svnserve--I found it easier than an svnserve that forks
subprocess (I've never managed to get gdb's follow-fork-mode to work).

I have no objections to -S disappearing, I only left it in so that no
existing functionality was removed.
