   The main thing I'd point to is this long explanation of what the
issues I found were:

   If you follow the links at the bottom of this page, it maps my
original patches to what eventually got committed to trunk, along
with the comments in SVN:

   We just drop the mod_dbd.c from trunk into 2.2.x and it works fine.
I did some really extensive testing of it beforehand, checking
all the various combinations of options, and I think it's pretty solid.

   IIRC, r491884 contains a number of fixes for old problems with
somewhat unusual combinations of things, like the use of ap_dbd_acquire()
on a non-threaded platform.  I tried to check all the combinations of
the following:

- with and without threads
- with and without persistent connections
- ap_dbd_[c]acquire(), with release during request or connection cleanup
- ap_dbd_open(), with explicit release using ap_dbd_close()
- failure during setup when creating persistent connection pools

   That's off the top of my head, so I may have missed a few things;
it's been a while since I thought about it.

   I'll try to start making up backports but it won't be tomorrow,
for sure.  :-/
