That adds a maintenance burden on us when we need to integrate patches or
updates from the original distribution.

(okay, maybe it doesn't apply to hsregex... I don't think I've seen a
 checkin there in the year I've been watching :-)

As a general policy, I don't think we should be altering our bundled libs
if we can avoid it. Keep it minimal...

Re: ap_config.h. I'm with Ben. If httpd.h needs it, then I think it should
include it. If httpd.h *can't* include it, then why? I'm presuming because
it has conflicting symbols that third party modules might not want. But if
they can't include it, then httpd.h will be incorrect (by definition).
