Quite probable... it's built for 2.0.x / apr 0.9.  I hope to start
testing after AC on 2.1 / APR 1.0.  I totally agree with keeping
the internal functions out of mod_ssl.h - this header should have
almost nothing to do with the implementation.

It's the 80/20 solution, 80%+ of other modules never need to see
the cruft, especially the cruft related to the underlying ssl

Compilers can't ignore the static fn() construct; they are always
explicitly private.  By far a better solution.

Could you describe what this patch accomplishes or was ment
to accomplish?
