I'll have a think and get back to you.

My expectation was that I could safely call apreq_params and have that
return the the table of all the parameters in the request.  But
looking at how that function is implemented (discarding the RV codes)
it's not really all that useful.  I believe the test script I was
using was malformed so that's probably what's going on.

So should apreq_params be deprecated given the lack of RV checking?
It seems that it's not possible to use it safely? I can easily
implement that same 'overlay or copy' logic (with error checking)
myself, but this function will probably still trip up the next unlucky
traveller.  Any ideas on a best fix for the library, rather than just
my own module?
