oops, sorry :(

no concerns here; is there code that can get deleted too?

I'm confused.  httpd still has its own gen_test_char when generates a
certain .h, and apr now has one that generates a different .h.  Why
wouldn't the build continue to run both programs when building httpd 2.4 in
conjunction with apr 1.5?  (I assume that in the future httpd trunk will
consume apr_escape and not need both, but we're not there yet.)

What this means is that \r and % are escaped on Windows and OS/2 when
performing shell escaping, but are not on other platforms.

help me out here (I seem them as completely independent steps which happen
to perform a similar function)

if committing one for Unix works then that would work too

need those extra chars escaped for shell AFAIK
