That's good.  

It is better than the design of the current server
because it allows the users to hang customization
off the data structures the APR API provides, and
because it works to assure that we don't neglect
to provide access to the resources provided by
the context in all routines.

Now if we change the name context to pool your
back to the nice workable design used in the current 
server and you have avoided creating any unnecessary
incompatiblities.  Please?
