if you are hanging out mod_core.h for a few days - could it _please_ move to
httpd-2.0/include till you finish and it gets its privacy back?


can we do _something_ about the symbol switching you have going on?  I see
a bunch of missing AP_DECLARE()'s - or a few too many.  I can't grok if these
fns will become private and restricted to mod_core, and never move around,
or if they will be accessable.  If they are supposed to be accessable, even
to 'intimate' modules like loadable protocols, please put the AP_DECLARE()s
back in ... otoh if they will not be exported please remove the AP_DECLARE()s
from the header.

Thanks, we will bear with you as long as we know where we are headed :-)
