-1, and I give you apr-iconv and apr-ldap both as the proof that this
is a doomed proposal, and dbd as counterexample of why this is not the
desirable state in the first place.  Actually, I'd offer the pain of the
whole state of PECL as an even better example, and CPAN as an example of
what is necessary to make it work.

dbd was stand alone long before it became part of apr-util and I would be
very interested in niq's opinion.
