The questions are;

  * do our users trust apr/test/ to provide simple examples?  Probably yes.
    (If not did we spell this out?  Answer; probably not.)

  * do our users need the knowledge?  In -this- case, probably yes, if you
    want an example look at httpd.

  * should we have architecture based tests?  I agree that would potentially
    be good, but then do we want a tree such as test/private/unix/*.c containing
    such specific tests, to reflect that they aren't public examples?
