The following comment is from apr_lib.h:
* apr_vformatter does not call out to any other code, it is entirely
* self-contained. This allows the callers to do things which are
* otherwise "unsafe". For example, apr_psprintf uses the "scratch"
* space at the unallocated end of a block, and doesn't actually
* complete the allocation until apr_vformatter returns. apr_psprintf
* would be completely broken if apr_vformatter were to call anything
* that used a apr_pool_t. Similarly http_bprintf() uses the "scratch"
* space at the end of its output buffer, and doesn't actually note
* that the space is in use until it either has to flush the buffer
* or until apr_vformatter returns.

Where does it say that? httpd uses it extensively, so if it's not, I'd
tend to think we'd have noticed by now...

Okay, will do that, but it's called in
"flood_easy_reports::easy_process_stats()" and it seems APR
documentation implies it is not thread safe.
We use a modified version of "flood_easy_reports" and I'd like to
confirm whether or not its use is truly thread safe.
