Yes, but now the MPM can choose what to do with it. I assume that the
complexity you were seeing was due to trying to store and pass around the
pod_ctx. We can choose to do it that way, or choose to use a global. Using
globals within the pod code removes the MPM's choices.

Thanks for making the change, though. I was going to volunteer to make it
after you checked in your patch.

Whacky. But no matter... we've got reviewers and your compiler is working
again :-)

Thanks for the patch... I hope it will increase the MPM's reliability.
