Why should this contribution be different than every other new feature
we've added over the past N years the project has been around?  For
all of those a note in the CHANGES and commit log that this was
contributed by J. Random Hacker <jrh@some-company.com> was sufficient.
 I'm just not thrilled with the idea of having to make a note in the
NOTICE file for every single company that sends us a patch that
implements new functionality.  It's not like this is external code we
sought out and added to the tree, this was developed with feedback
from other APR developers on our mailing lists.
