Which brings me back to my original question: "Why do we have an abort
function?"  As you said (I was originally thinking this, but admittedly, 
I didn't bring this up), we can't do much.  About the only thing we can 
do is exit.  We *might* be able to make a log entry somewhere, but that
depends if we need memory to do the printf or whatnot.

And, if palloc returns junk - NULL or non-NULL, we're bound to segfault
at some point - which takes care of our process anyway.  Error-checking
is something that we pointedly avoid doing in APR.

I'm not still sure what the abort function gets us.  -- justin
