My plan was have v2.0 reviewed, then backport the changes to apr-util  

Given that jim has reviewed it, and you have come up with an API very  
similar to the one on trunk, let me conclude that the work so far in  
trunk is on the right track at the very least, and let me backport  
r899910 this weekend for you from apr-trunk to apr-util v1.4.

Are you referring to the order of the parameters? If so, then +1 to  
any change that will may the parameters more consistent (given that  
the current order is inspired by by apr_dbd). Let me look at that too,  
based on the header file you submitted.
