You know what I'd like to see?

An easy way to drop in a new malloc/realloc/free for APR at runtime.

In some environments, I'm already running with a highly-modified jemalloc (the one for mozilla), and it would be nice to be able to use it for APR stuff.  Especially in my case where that would significantly improve my locality of reference!  I use NULL-parent-pools for storing private data for javascript objects, and clean the pools up when the objects are collected.

So, any pool with parent == NULL will be unmanaged?

You mean they aren't?  Uh-oh!
