I've got to think that perhaps that connection pooling and query 
caching code is a better fit in apr-util than in httpd.  I don't see 
a reason why that must be in httpd.  If we had it in apr-util, it'd 
be easier for APR apps to write solid LDAP code.

In fact, I thought that was the original plan.  I recall that some 
people weren't too comfortable with the pooling code in APR-util. 
But, I still think it makes sense...  -- justin
