But we were looking for an example of such a library, and you gave apr as
that example.  If apr is not an example of a library that needs to be
mapped, as I do not believe it is, than please give one that is.  Please
note, that because of the way that apr works, simply mapping calls such

OS_specific_file_open -->  ap_file_open 

isn't going to work.  It won't be possible to plug in a non-apr
portability layer under the covers.  APR is taking care of too much for it
to be replaceable like that.  IF you want to replace it, you will have to
go through and change the calls.  The good news, is that those calls will
be easy to find, because they will have common names.
