Personally, I would prefer to not have this in our tree if it requires a
GPL'ed library.  I consider this different from GDBM, because there are
options for using apr-util's DB library without GDBM.  I believe this is
also why this MPM wasn't committed when it was originally posted.
However, if the group wants it, I won't veto.
