trunk or 1.4.x?  (your patch looks like trunk)

as for 1.4.x:

APR_HAVE in apr.h* is an API; can't add new ones in 1.4.x series

(but if 1.4.x/include/apr.h.in is missing something for Windows that
has been in apr.hw, that's fair game since apr.h.in has never been
reasonably close to correct for Windows)

as for trunk:  start a new thread not related to getting 1.x releases
out the door ;)

is this a 1.4.x discussion?
