The entire NSPR code, or just the bits we need? From what I found out
playing with Dean's apache-nspr, NSPR had a lot of "extra" stuff that
we'd never use. So at the least, we'd need to separate the wheat
from the chaff.

If the LICENSE is such that we can pull out what we need and add it
to APR, then cool. Maybe that's what you meant.
