Yep, that sounds good.  In some ways it would be nice just to drop Ralf's
library in, but I'm not sure how well it supports all the platforms we'll
need to address (no doubt Ralf will advise on that :-)).

However, even if we do simply use Ralf's library we still need to agree what
the interface will look like from APR.
