I don't conceptually have a problem with the APR_NO_CLEANUP flag (or
whatever it would be called), but I do have a problem with using
apr_os_file_get/apr_os_file_put for this.  There has got to be a better
way.  (For one thing, your APR_XTHREAD flag is meaningless if you do

You still have a problem with the apr_file_t disappearing when r->pool
goes away, meaning you'd still need the apr_os_file_get/put thing, which
just doesn't seem like a good idea to me.  There has got to be a good way
to do this... I'll keep thinking on it and get back to you asap.
