Cool, well if someone who has commit access could do that, I'd 
appreciate it.

Good to know.

Ahh, I just can't read then ;-)

Maybe nobody uses the dlls.  Or nobody uses the random number generator. 
  It is rather new, after all.

In any case, this means I should have something that can generate 
apr.dsp and libapr.dsp later tonight or tomorrow.  No promises as to how 
much it'll actually work, since I don't actually have a copy of VC6, but 
it'll at least look similar enough to the existing ones in the tree that 
someone on win32 will have a fighting chance to pound it into working 
order and commit it.
