In a way, yes.  rotatelogs.c didn't link in _any_ other modules on
win32.  Bringing in the string formatting as you did introduced all
sorts of dependencies upon dependencies.  We reimplement stat() and
strfmt() on win32, but relied on other httpd core code to do so!?!
That was the evil, not your patch.

By moving those 'os-extensions' into os.c, we make anyone using 'our'
idea of 1.3 have at those extensions by linking in ApacheOS, as the
patch does for rotatelogs.

Exactly.  I'm open to discussion, and I'll push this patch by a day
into Monday eve so those with issues (that won't read these posts
till they get into work) can look and comment.
