And surprisingly it works!! 

(meta: the correct mailing list for APR issues like this is; please configure your mail client to wrap lines at
72 chars or so)

Unfortunately, there are now two uses of APR_INCOMPLETE:

1) (original use) the final character in a buffer being
   translated/recoded from one character set to another is incomplete

2) not all the information requested about a file could be retrieved

   By far most occurrences of APR_INCOMPLETE in the APR and Apache
   sources are this second use.
