  Modified:    .        STATUS
  Log:
  My comment has nothing to do with versioning but rather a tendency
  to be conservative about things that could possibly fail - given an
  unknown implementation.  Our implementation can't fail, but a theoretical
  MD5 implementation could.  I've just been bit by too many locations in
  httpd where no return code was ever thought possible and we had to
  change the API to handle a return code when we did need it.
  
  Note that our md5 implementation has no business being in APR - it
  should be in apr-util with our "crypto" stuff there.  The overall goal
  of providing random bytes on all platforms (i.e. APR_HAS_RANDOM is always
  defined) would mean that we can kick md5 to its appropriate place - see
  note about where the fix needs to be.  So, if you "fix" the API, it might
  be goodness to move it to apr-util at the same time.
