AP_EXPORT?  No, it's a seperate library, ergo seperate linkage spec.

VAR_EXPORT <-> EXPORT_VAR?  Either way you want to have it, I'm hearing
three negatives here, so I'm reversing out *this aspect*, within the next
1/2 hour.

I'll search my CD for the comments.  Any idea on the timetable of that
discussion (the year would be a good start).

Unless someone has STRONG feelings, I am looking to isolate the code
module http_main.c to allow it to link into a seperate binary.  These
args are the only thing in my way.  In this, the Win32 implementation
becomes Apache.exe (of http_main.c alone) dynamically linked to all
the remaining core server code.

See the Greg comments on the remaining name changes.
