Current testing in house seems to prove out running bind 9.3.0 threaded on 
FreeBSD 4.9-p11.  Looking at cvsweb it seems the lockout on threading was 
implimented 2+ years ago, based on the fact that threading support was 
listed as experimental.  Given our testing, instead of just doing an OS 
Version test, should threading be a user controllable variable, if not 
enabled by default?  In our high load enviroment, threaded bind is a vast 
improvement in performance, and reliability as we don't stop responding to 
dns at cache-clean intervals.
