  Index: TODO
  This is just a small list of things yet to be done, or things
  that we may want/need to consider.  I haven't put it in the
  STATUS file for APR as none of these can be considered
  showstoppers for the time being.

  - we need to add dynamic loading ability for memory
    systems.  As to how it should be done this needs to be
    looked at.  Some known issues include 
      o differing arguments for create functions
    Just to clarify why this will be very cool if we can get
    it working, we give the user the ability to use 3rd party modules
    that can actually have almost total control over how the
    memory is allocated. Not sure I know of other libraries where
    this is possible.
  - given the problems that can occur when trying to find 
    alloc/free problems we should probably have a special debug
    memory system that records everything it does and any
    other information we think is useful.
  - in addition to the debugging system, we need to look at
    methods of checking memory allocations to ensure we're
    behaving when we have the ASSERT_MEMORY flag turned on.
    The pools in 1.3 had code from dean and Roy, Greg has added
    some special stuff for pools under Linux on 2.0, so we just
    need some ideas
