  +  *) THE BIG SYMBOL RENAMING
  +       To avoid symbol clashes with third-party code compiled into the server,
  +       the general prefix `ap_' was globally applied to the following classes
  +       of symbols in the Apache source tree: Apache provided general functions
  +       (e.g., ap_cpystrn), public API functions (e.g., palloc, bgets) and
  +       private functions which can't be made static (because of cross-object
  +       usage) but should be (e.g., new_connection).  For backward source
  +       compatibility with Apache 1.2 a new header file named compat.h was
  +       created which provides defines for the old symbol names and should be
  +       used by third-party module authors.
