Keep sticking, because I have mine too.

All of the regex functions and structures exposed to modules should be
ap_ protected. We don't want the HS regex functions to collide with
the system's. In fact, I thought we were already doing this.

Since the functions are definitely being provided by Apache, there
should be no conditional #including necessary, hence no AP_USE_HSREGEX

Now, there could be other reasons for exporting conditional macros to
the outside world (and the solutions I mentioned earlier are the best
ones, I think). But, since Apache should really be exporting a
completely platform and configuration-independant API, I am guessing
that this won't be necessary.
