Fair enough... code may be easier to follow, and I won't have time to
attack that aspect this week.  Decided these 'optimizations' are all
beta 2 issues.  I'm fixing some problems, so apr will grow a fn or three,
and Win32 will slow down more.  This is -appropriate- at this phase
(optimization after correctness of behavior.)

stat() on win32 isn't slow.  It's wrong.

Nuf said (that's what bit us several times with security holes.)

When I get so far, I'll start -from scratch-.  Sorry - I may have 
mis-attributed the committer of that change.
