Yes. But for final inclusion it has to be tweaked a little bit more, of
course. For instance the platform determination section in ap_mm.h should be
enlarged to contain more fixed platforms instead of the guessing approach. The
license text (see above) has to be ajusted and the malloc library has to be
tested in more gory detail. This first cut for a patch was mainly intended to
get feedback for the concept and code.

Don't panic because of the license, Jim. The stuff is derived from a
stand-alone library ("mm") I wrote for mod_ssl and I've just copy & pasted the
code from there to ap_mm.[ch] including the license. When it should be
officially accepted as a contribution it will be contributed under our Apache
license, of course.
