Report on users@httpd reminds me to try to resurrect this.  I don't
see the discussion here but I vaguely recalls someone mentioning it
would not be acceptable to change APR to choose a different default
mutex (proc_pthread?) when available.  This would still allow a
program to explicitly choose fcntl mutexes and get itself in trouble
just like the native calls.
