  One more thought.  If you insist on playing games using the unix stuff on win32
without s/lf/crlf/, then why the fu*k are you using a windows IDE?  I'd be +1
for supporting gnu make tools on win32, provided we continue to build on the
native Win32/NT APIs, not the cygwin compatibility layer.

Which is why you broke everyone who checked out the tree this morning.

I consider my original reply a very clear veto.  None of us tollerate committing
code -over- a legitimate veto.  If that message wansn't to this list, condem the
goofs who decided that apr/new-httpd reply-to semantics differ.
