Subject Re: Optimization, modern C and APR 2.0 onwards

If we are serious about having a serious update to APR, I
would recommend that we use more up-to-date data structures,
patterns and algorithms than those in apr1. For example,
Greg's pocore mini lib is an example of the types of improvements
we should consider.
