Yes, that is how it is today.

At the moment, I think it is worthwhile to consider increasing build
times by a very small amount in return for avoiding #ifdefs, so at the
moment I'm more interested in seeing how much negative feedback I get.
Your response would seem to go in that category :)

Alternatively, maybe this is more palatable to everybody if it is
layered as follows:

Blindly include "util_charset.h" where appropriate.

inside util_charset.h:


#include "util_ebcdic.h"

(future stuff applicable to charset handling in general other than
stuff that would live in a module like mod_ebcdic or mod_charset)

#endif /* APACHE_XLATE */

At the current time, APACHE_XLATE isn't defined and there is no
util_charset.h (or even util_ebcdic.c or util_ebcdic.h) but those are
minor details which are easily corrected.
