Well, that's what I was thinking - though I'm not so sure that $arch
should be something that specific.

Initially at least I don't think we should be making a choice between
using apr.IA32 and writing platform specific natives.  I think we
should continue with what we have until such a time that apr becomes
the better choice.  So what we'd need now is a mechanism to override
the automatic choice of "platform".  I wouldn't be too surprised if
someone decided to create "platforms" for the other two (?) choices of
windows implementation - cygwin native and cygwin w/o cygwin.dll.

It might be useful to develop some tests to prove the natives for
platforms that don't yet have VM support.
