Just a status update: I think I've almost finished this. I have to fix
httpd.h by moving a big pile of defines to either MPM-specific or
OS-specific header files; then we can include "mpm_defaults.h" or
"os.h" to get these. Then I have one left in http_log.h: a few
small elements in a structure are left out if HAVE_RELIABLE_PIPED_LOGS
isn't defined.

Other than that, this seems to be pretty easy (though it's all
completely untested so far), mostly because there's already a
CORE_PRIVATE define that a bunch of the platform-dependant stuff can

Eventually, it would be cool to separate out everything that should be
accessible outside a module and put it in separate header files. Then,
only these header files would be accessible to modules. Voila! A
defined API!
