By default, we should be creating processes without a visible console.

Simply put, APR needs to create similar behavior across platforms, and
relieve the application author from dealing with platform quirks (such
as console windows popping up.)

I don't have a huge issue with offering console windows as a platform
feature where they can be supported, in apr 1.3.0 or later, but certainly
wouldn't want to see this become the default behavior.  terminal below
must default to 0.

So the gist of your patch (eliminating console windows) would be a good
addition across APR 0.9, 1.2 and trunk.  Adding the option would be of
interest only as a new API in trunk for version 1.3 or 2.0 (whichever
comes first) per our versioning rules.

Bottom line rule to apply is the principle of least surprise to authors
as they port from platform to platform.
