I'm just pondering, does this violate our ABI rules?  I wasn't watching
the development of the dbd over time, but for example this creates an
exported symbol, which is picked up by the crappy way that httpd binds(*)
to all external symbols, creating a hard dependency on 1.2.11 and not
permitting the user to substitute 1.2.10, for example.


(*) the real solution is to jettison the bind-to-every-symbol crap from
    httpd trunk before 2.4 or 3.0/amsterdam goes out the door.  in the
    world of modern shared libraries, it's entirely unnecessary and
    pollutes httpd for no purpose.  If we bound apr statically, that
    would be a different story.
