I should have pointed out that if the sizeof() is well known,
and we know of/expect developers to allocate it for themselves,
then we would have to have a major bump; as long as httpd has
an allocator for the structure (which observes the now-current
sizeof()) then we are fine :)

This really makes me pause and consider; we really need an accessor
to define the version/length of specific apache defined structures;
low-level modules can check if they need to know they are compatible.

Good change for Apache 2.2's API?
