Agreed, manipulate this independently, provided it can be toggled in real
time (as opposed to being locked into this behavior for the lifetime of
the apr_reslist).

+1 provided a patch is forthcoming shortly.

Like Roy, I'm frustrated with aprutil's dependency madness, and I'm working
right now on abstracting out apu-util into a loadable module.  At this point
a --with-ldap build on linux FC8 is producing this pile of crap as bindings
for those applications with no use for ldap;


So if we take a few more days to smooth out the rough edges of 1.3.0 I think
it's a huge win to get these things right, reslist included.
