Actually it was discussed, I believe on the list.

I was thinking of puting it under it's own tree, or under unix (as it
should stay generic), but the only one commenting was Ryan, who rightly
observed that mm is imported under shmem/unix, since that's a unix thing.

The reason I even imported it (and ryan, hold off a little bit on moving
the repository) was that we are about to blast apr.  This is the time
to rearrange, before we set up the apr tree.

I'm all ears :-)

No thought whatsoever, except that the worst offender in the win32
game (iconv/lib/iconv_module.c) will become iconv_dll.c, just for
really good measure (the path seperator changes, etc...)

I'm actually thinking of porting to generic apr, but that means we
statically link -into- the apr, since I hate mututal dependencies.
