"include" is sort for more widely used.

"lib" is sort of a perlish thing, so it's a bit confusing.

How about:


or keep the headers along with *.c

-0. When loading several files from different projects in the same editor 
this becomes confusing.

+1 to keep apreq_ prefix in all files.

In any case you must keep the apreq_ prefix for header files, so having 
the *.c files the same way is quite consistent.

It's a home of mod_apreq, so why not just call it that way?

unless something has changed recently in the branch you work on (I'm 
looking at HEAD) I can't see anything but mod_apreq under the current env/

as for apache2, it's interesting. Do you think apache1.3 might be added at 
some point too?
