That's cool. Whoever (that would be me :-) wants the column names will 
be able to patch their own copy of APR before the 1.3 release.

Eh, I didn't think of that at all. Does it make any difference that DBD 
is part of Utils, not APR itself? What if someone doesn't want APR 
Utils, but wants APR - wouldn't that create a dependency of APR on APR 
Utils? Or maybe that's already the case...

Anyhow, if that goes through, maybe the existing function apr_dbd_init 
can just be a do-nothing deprecated thingy (so that all exisiting 
callers don't have to rewrite their code) and apr_initialize actually 
calls something like apr_dbd_init2?
