oh, that's a good idea to keep track of the taint flag. since that's 
another thing that we should probably restore on data retrieval in 
APR::Table, if we decide to handle UTF8.

Too bad perl flags take 32U, it'd be the easiest to just store the flags 
as is and then restore them all at once. (though may be that's not 
feasible since the status of the new variable is not the same as it was 
when it was stored)
