I'm following up, since there is one set within these suggestions
that I'm loath to implement until some others take a look;

Using the current declarations, ap_interval_time_t is restricted to just a little
over 35 seconds... that's rather absurd!  I don't like the patch for that reason,
but I'm not about to go flipping ap_interval_time_t to 64 bits without some more
feedback from other platforms.
