I have a patch in my local tree to implement POSIX pthread rwlocks.

Basically adds to apr_lock.h:

typedef enum {APR_READER, APR_WRITER} apr_readerwriterlock_e;

 * Lock a region with either a reader or writer lock.
 * @param lock The lock to set.
 * @param type The type of lock to acquire.
 * @deffunc apr_status_t apr_lock_acquire_rw(apr_lock_t *lock, apr_readerwriterlock_e type)
APR_DECLARE(apr_status_t) apr_lock_acquire_rw(apr_lock_t *lock,
                                              apr_readerwriterlock_e type);

I am testing it now since I'm playing with threading ab.  This is a lark, 
but I'm REALLY frustrated at ab right now - even if this attempt at 
threading falls flat on its face, I can at least implement reader/writer 
locks in APR.

Whenever I finish it, I'll clean it up and post it.  I'll try and include 
the stubs for the other platforms.  -- justin
