No, an ap_session_xxx layer shouldn't be built on top of the mm_xxx API. When
you want such things, it should be built on top of the regular Apache memory
pools, but the forthcoming shared pools for this. Because the memory pools
will already know how to use the MM library in the background for you, so why
shouldn't one directly use the MM library when an even more convinient way via
Apache pools exists? ;-)
