Well, you had just beaten me to finally getting around to making this change (once I
got my head out of whatever hole it was in and realized that changing it one way or
the other wasn't nearly as big a deal as I'd made it out to be before).  But...

Agreed.  I had kind of wondered the same thing as Greg here, though... semantically
it seemed to me that an unsigned len was more along the intended lines.  But I
suppose that's somewhat arbitrary.  Might it be a better way to look at this that
the type used by apr_sendfile() should match the corresponding type used by
sendfile() (at least on most platforms)?  What would that be?
