All righty. Are we only talking about ASCII and EBCDIC? There isn't
anything else that will sneak up on us, right?

And aren't Win32 and NetWare always going to use the ASCII form? In which
case, we just hard-wire their build systems to point to the ASCII version.

Once I understand the set of options here, I'll make it happen since I
broke it in the first place :-)

To be honest, I'm thinking that we just hand-write the two tables into
apr_uri.c and use a #define to select the right one. We should already
have a symbol somewhere saying whether we're using EBCDIC. Then we can get
rid of all this delimiter generation stuff. These tables are quite
constant... :-)
