Thanks for the feedback...

The reason I have them as such is so that the actual C code takes
care of the quotes. I like to avoid situations where people need
to escape quotes at the command-line when compiling... But either
way works for me :)

Yeah... I looking into using the apr method, which stores these in
pointers and then dereferences them as needed. The only reason I didn't
was to avoid all the extra "stuff" required to define the struct and
then change all the others calls to use it... But yes, I agree that
it's most likely worth it.

Yeah... that's why I kept the USE_ stuff... Making a name change
would break current custom compiles (which could break anyway, but
at least it keeps things consistant).

Or maybe you're suggesting we keep USE_ to define the *default*
method and then create HAVE_ which lists the available methods.
So basically we would replace all USE_XXXXX_SERIALIZED_ACCEPT with
HAVE_XXXXX_SERIALIZED_ACCEPT, and the have USE_ set the default.
Hmmmm... I think I like that :)

My main goal was to have a small enough patch that added the
functionality without so many changes that people rejected it,
hence the limited general changes ;)

If the above changes are implemented, anyone foresee a -1 ??
