I asked a while back about having a test in this function to this effect:

if (drivers)
   return APR_SUCCESS;

This was to make sure that more than one Apache module can call the  
function without any ill effect. Obviously, calling this function from  
more than one thread would still be unsafe, but that's not normally  
the case within Apache, as most initialisation happens during process  
creation (AFAIK).

I think Nick wanted to move this function into apr_initialize instead.  
I wasn't sure if that was a good idea, because it may create APR  
dependency on APU (which may already be the case - I don't know).  
After that, I completely forgot about the issue, so we never reached a  
conclusion on this and it was not addressed before the release. Sorry  

What's the final verdict on this?
