Of course, with DSOs there are some whole new lifetime issues to think 
about - it *is* difficult, no doubt about it.  Nesting pools properly 
and avoiding "global" pools helps with constraining the DSO to its own 
little short-lived world.

I'm not seeing anything at all here which needs changing in APR; just 
some application code which has not been designed in anticipation of 
being used from a DSO.  That is really not something which can or should 
be fixed in APR.
