Explicit casts from void * to other pointer types are only needed for
really old pre-ISO C compilers on which APR probably doesn't work

Yes, it should be consistent with _destroy, that looks like a
copy'n'paste mistake from the brigade_cleanup function possibly.

The only practical effect is the lost type-safety, it's otherwise fine. 
If you fix the prototype in apr-util and rebuild mod_perl/etc does that
reveal any compiler warnings?
