I just created apreq/branches/muti-env-unstable so we can 
pursue the handle idea without destabilizing apreq/trunk.
Max, if you'd like me to review & incorporate your patches
into that branch, please put "PATCH [multi-env]:" in the
subject header and post the patch to the list.  As a general rule
we cannot accept patches for inclusion unless they're submitted
to the mailing list, so if you need to compless them or spread 
them across multiple emails, please do that.

I'm believe the discussed changes are mostly API refactoring, 
and should be incorporated into libapreq2 prior to release.  But 
I'd rather not muck with the trunk until we can see the final 
result of this effort.
