There are currently two possible avenues.

1)  The code goes into apr-util.
2)  The code goes into a sandbox project.

The APR option is faster, but there is some misgivings about whether it
belongs in apr-util.  The vote was done, and it seems to be accepted, but
Greg was keeping tally, so I don't have the exact numbers about where it
would go.  I _think_, and I could be wrong, that it would be put in
apr-util/html as a separate piece of apr-util.

The second option will take a bit longer, because the sandbox project will
need to be created first.

I have tried to answer without letting any of my personal opinions show in
the message, because that has caused some problems before.  The real
question now, is given those two options, which would you prefer.  Not
saying that your preference is the only factor i the decision, but it
should be taken into account.

There are also some people questioning why we are moving so quickly on
this.  The general feeling is that we should find the best fit before
taking the code.  If you are in a rush, then that would change things, but
the understanding was just that you wanted to be kept in the loop about
what is happening.

Keep pinging, but the conversation is on-going, and very active, so there
is little chance that it won't happen.  It is really just a matter of time
