These look simple enough to commit, the actual patch is;

    http://people.apache.org/~colm/apr-IO-patches/001-flags-stdio.patch

The variable buffer size patches on the other hand; while I have it
tested on unix and win32, they will likely break on netware and os2, as
my patches there are based on guesswork. 

I'd like to avoid knowingly breaking trunk for any platform, so I think
creating a branch is a simple enough workaround, and when it works for
all platforms, merge it into trunk. Looking at the subversion repository
though, we don't seem to use branches for anything but the specific
versions of apr. Is this intentional? Any problems with creating a
branch for this? (or any problems with the idea of variable buffer sizes 
in general?).
