I am missing something here.  This patch requires us to use the non-portable
W* macros in Apache.  That is wrong.  This patch does not help APR to be
more portable, rather it allows programs that use APR to continue to use
non-portable constructs to solve the problem.  I would fully expect that in
order for this to be done correctly, we will need to modify 
ap_process_child_status in mpm_common.c to not use the W* functions.  If we
do anything else, then we have not helped APR to be portable.
