It wouldn't be hard, we would just need to put our own buffering into APR.
For the sake of getting APR up and working and stable, I decided to use
what was available for the first version of APR.  I would think that in
APR 1.1, we could probably get buffering into APR itself, and remove the
need for FILE *'s completely.  I agree, it does make somethings ugly to
have those FILE *'s in there.
