Erm, well if people are happy enough with the basic concept then I'll
start suggesting patches, but I wanted to give people the opportunity to
look at what was there and decide if it was a good fit for apr-util
before I started proposing. If I'd dropped a whole load of patches
without any form of comment that would have been frowned upon as well
wouldn't it? I am well aware of the size requirements...

I was trying to be "diplomatic", but maybe I shouldn't have been?
