That's Apache's problem.  APR's problem is getting a meaningful
and complete error message back to the calling application.
Let's deal with that first.

I wish the rich error type hadn't been dissed; this 'one error,
one int' approach is soooo lame and stupid.  Yes, it's the
Unix way -- but so is decades of non-reentrant libc routines.
The rich error type has about a quarter of a century of
untainted elegant success.. but oh well.
