I agree (not being an OS/390 developer :-), but AS/400 and Windows are
definitely not Unix. The src/os/win32 directory has lots of Windows specific
stuff (a lot it is there to keep from cluttering up http_main.c) that is not
suitable for folding into APR. It seems senseless to gratuitously move it
'just because'.
