Then my thought is to remove the code entirely from apr branch 1.3.x and
encourage it's development and refinement on trunk.

The reason I've brought this all up is that I hope to transpose apr_dbd_lock
with an apr_module_lock, which would be used for all dynamic module loading.

But if we have excessive mutex contention, this will hurt us.

So I agree with you that the global logic can be gone, and we'll move
forward.  If you have such a patch to 1.3.x branch I'd be happy to simply
apply that (which lets me focus on apr_module api's for dbd and ldap at this
moment, and for dbm, iconv and xlate down the road).
