But, if the thread exits cleanly by calling apr_thread_exit() or has its
own private SMS (I don't care which, but I think storing the SMS in the
apr_thread_t object is a bit unclean), it'll return all of its
resources with properly registered cleanups when the per-thread SMS is 
destroyed as the thread exits cleanly.  Again, I'm just not seeing what 
the problem is here.  -- justin
