The "existing" interface doesn't exist - it was made up a month or so
ago, and only appears in 1.2-dev versions of Apache.

Hmm. Well, we may have to do that. Or keep the extra two chars around
somehow else.

OTOH, we could just redefine the function to say that the buffer
should be able to hold two more bytes than bufsiz. (or, conversely,
that bufsiz should be two more bytes than you really need - the code
needs a -2 or +2 in there somewhere either way).
