IIUC 1.3 allows new functions added, correct?

If that's the case I have something to add by tomorrow.
It's a new apr_pool API allowing to create 'detached'
or 'standalone' pools. Those pools don't have parent
and must be explicitly destroyed.

This is particullary useful for embedding apr in systems
with their own memory management (like Java).
We are doing some really weird tricks in
Tomcat and Mina just to deal with premature and zombie
memory access.
