Names exported to the C linker by the APR project should be prefixed:

   [X] apr_         [ ] ap_       [X] I don't care

I would just like to remind everybody that ALL that code has to change
anyway.  There will be NO way that 1.3 modules will work with 2.0.  This
is because 1.3 uses int's as files and sockets, and 2.0 will be using
apr_file_t and apr_socket_t types.  Yes, downstream modules are going to
take a hit, and so will all of the code in the base distribution.  But the
argument for doing it is to get platform independance in Apache.
