Oh sure.  Well in that case, it makes sense, because the apr function
doesn't know what the underlying data type is and so it *has to* do the
size multiplication itself.  I was just trying to give you the cleanest
version you could use if you did it in your own code that *did* know the
actual datatype.  :)

Anyway glad that will work for you.  Apache does tons of that kind of
direct indexing into APR arrays, or at least it used to.  That's why we
never thought to add such a function.  I'm not saying it's necessarily a
bad idea to add one from an API-completeness point of view.  :)  But if
we're going to have that discussion, let's do it on dev@apr.
