Well, I'd just like to clarify what the goal is here.  Is it just to
provide an API that's nicer to use in a pool based app?  Is it to
actually provide a portability layer that uses multiple back end regex
libraries (seems unlikely).  I don't necessarily object if all you're
trying to do is make things work better with other apr type code, I
just want to clarify that it is in fact the goal.
