Since the apr_thread_* routines are for syncing between threads, this
shouldn't be called apr_thread_rwlock. Naming it apr_global_rwlock_t
is probably more appropriate.

Also, for the Windows gurus -- is this concept portable? Do we need to
make the interface more general to make sure it will work on Windows
and other platforms, or will it work as it is?
