Subject apr_time_t --> apr_time_usec_t
Date Mon, 10 Jun 2002 22:04:19 GMT
I am tired of seeing this stupid change to the semantics of time_t
under Unix continue to cause bugs in every project that uses APR.
apr_time_t must be in seconds.  If folks want APR to keep time in
microseconds, then they had bloody well change the type name
accordingly.

I know of one existing bug in httpd that I would consider a
showstopper, if I were RM, due to the way APR handles time.
In order to fix it, I am going to need to reinstate handling
of time in seconds, even if that means abandoning APR's routines.
