The original author of apr_dbd is Nick Kew, and the MySQL specific code 
is still available from his website, as it hasn't yet been checked in to 
the APR Subversion repository due to the license issue.  I made some 
modifications to the apr_dbd API since Nick wrote the MySQL dbd 
implementation, so the version on his site may not work with the current 
version in Subversion, but it shouldn't be hard to update.

Similar, but this interoperates with the rest of APR (i.e. memory pools 
and so forth).
