Leads straight into the obvious question, where do we store 'apr
performance and behavior characteristics'?

It came up 6 or 7 years ago or so, and because the need wasn't that

On win32, one would think the registry makes good sense.  On unix,
an /ect/apr.conf file makes good sense.  Other suggestions, ideas
and exceptional cases?
