Dean was talking about it. It was the discussion about the AP_ prefix
being different than all of the other prefix proposals that triggered
my veto (it was the last straw).  If hide.h was using "ap_" instead
and there was a reasonable likelihood that we would use "ap_" for all
those functions throughout 1.3.x, then letting the current code be
released would not be such a significant event.
