please:

identify the dependency chain.  please.

if there's some automated code tools that help do this - i believe
that even VC++ may help, here - then all the better.

or source navigator, or code warrior, or your own perl scripts,
or _something_.

please, make an ordered tree of data structures that use-and-depend
on apr_pool_t, and then you can decide which bits to target first.

if i was working on this project, and i've had experience at doing
it the _other_ way with 300,000-line codebases, where everybody
needs to know what's going on in order to approve it, this is what
i would do.

the other way, btw, is just to sit in front of a screen 10x7 for
4 weeks and morph the code into submission [ala extreme programming].
this tends to get results very fast and leaves everyone else
gawping - and nervous, 'cos it look _nothing_ like it used to.
