Notice that apr_pollfd_internal_t *int; below _IS_ entirely
opaque...  [and using a reserved keyword, the member name
REALLY sucked... how about simply *private.]

As long as we have an opaque accessor which we define
[and later redefine as needed] I don't see any huge problem
with keeping both apr_pollfd_t and apr_pollfd_set_t transparent.

Yes, we need extensible and very private storage, but I think
the design below for apr_pollfd_set_t accomplishes this.
