nginx and multi-threading support

I am looking at using nginx for an embedded environment. I understand that
nginx uses non-blocking event-driven IO and has multiple worker processes
to scale to multiple cores.  Looking at the code, I see there is an option
to use multiple threads as well. One of the model I am looking at is to
have a single process but multiple worker threads. Is this functionality
mature/complete ?

I see a similar question asked about 9 months back on this forum, but am
wondering if something is changed since then ?,217370,217455#msg-217455
