I should amend my vote a -.5. The patch should work as you've coded it but opening a file
for use with 
apr_sendfile causes the file to be opened for overlapped i/o on Windows.  I expect some of
the codepaths will 
not correctly handle this (Jeff and I fixed one such case when a file was opened for sendfile
but mod_ssl 
prevented apr_sendfile from actually being used). Probably more bugs but they need to be found
and fixed and I 
have no idea if there are other similar issues on platforms other than windows.
