This is silly. All "apr" functions would be under src/lib/apr/. Just
port anything you find in there.

What is the problem with that? Port by location in the source tree, NOT
the name.

This is really silly to revisit... there is no "compelling reason".

My vote is only because I know a tally will still be taken. However, I
*protest* the need to vote in the first place.
