As I read it, Bill's implementation makes the APR_INHERIT a flag that 
must be passed in when calling apr_file_open.  Otherwise, it'd default
to making it non-inherited.  Therefore, I'd propose making the flag
APR_NON_INHERIT and making the default as inherited (i.e. when it is
not specified).  That'd satisfy my tastes.  Bill may have just done it
that way because Win32 defaults to non-inherited.

Other than that, no complaints.  

+1 as I think we do need something like this at times.  -- justin
