That was initially removed because the benefit was minor and the 
multithreading could have been causing deadlocks. With the code trees 
merging again, I believe there was indication that the multithreading would 
be restored, but the additional threads are used primarily for slow service 
stuff like DNS lookups, not to spread the load of the main server operation.

My guess is that the engine wasn't designed for multithreading, so adding 
it now would be pretty painful. It really has to be designed in from the 
ground up for something this complex.
