main, initial discussion ends here:

meanwhile, unreleased apr trunk and unreleased apr-util 1.4.x have

APU_DECLARE(void) apr_reslist_cleanup_order_set(apr_reslist_t *rl,
                                                apr_uint32_t mode)
    apr_pool_cleanup_kill(rl->pool, rl, reslist_cleanup);
        apr_pool_pre_cleanup_register(rl->pool, rl, reslist_cleanup);
        apr_pool_cleanup_register(rl->pool, rl, reslist_cleanup,
