This is a tough question. On the one hand, Greg's right that your 
arguments can effectively be used in favour of putting any and all 
"useful" utility functions into ARP. On the other hand, one might just 
as easily use Greg's arguments to throw pools out of APR and put them in 
a separate utility library ...

To me, all of this speaks in favour of creating /another/ library for 
such not-sctrictly-portability stuff, and slowly moving the generic bits 
out of APR. For all I care this could mean splitting APR into a core and 
utility library, but keeping them conceptually together.

How much sense that makes is another matter.
