I've been mulling over thoughts that might relate to this: modularisation
of apr_util - in the sense of making it a set of APIs impelemented
by loadable dso modules.

The rationale here is to deal with the functionality-vs-bloat dilemma.
There's a lot of apr-extension code floating around: for example apvfs or
apr_http_client, sharing the property of being APR-based and of likely
interest to projects using APR.  Can we accommodate this kind of
extension in the manner of modules for httpd?

If we work towards a modular extensible core, then this becomes one
element of that effort, I think?
