Why deal with a structure just to pass some parameters? Yes: I favor just
adding parameters to ap_xlate_open().

Within minor releases, we can add extra parameters to new functions such
as ap_xlate_open2(). At the major release, we drop the openN() functions
and go back to a single ap_xlate_open().
