A full implementation of only shm ... if you want 'memory management', you 
pass the base pointer and size to rmm :)

I noted one thing that perhaps was forgotten.  We have two forms of attach(),
one that you pass the key into, and the second (better called reattach()) that
you will pass the apr_shm_t into, obtained from the parent, that the child
must call after fork to have a true shm segment once again.  If it wasn't
called, I believe the child gets a private copy of the shm (which is no fun.)

Unless I'm missing something obvious...
