Missed one

4. on trunk, complete the apr_password_* API's such that crypt() isn't
   needed by an app.

With apr[-util] drawing in openssl as of 1.3.x, I plan to pick up the
openssl des_crypt implementation.  Platforms other than unix'es will
be able to handle crypt passwords, and we can pitch the ones with the
crypled crypt() implementations :)
