What was consensus?  I'm not really sure I read one; could you
tally the discussion Jim?  --build-apr only makes sense if we
strip out 'builtin' srclib/apr.

I was making a suggestion to Kaspar, though :)  Spending my time
in the morass of 2.0.65 so that we can T&R the vulnerable code
and call it 'done, final, gone' (or nearly so).  That, and getting
patches into mod_ftp and tagging both the long neglected ftp and
fcgid modules for votes.  fcgid has some substantial fixes already
in tree.

My 2.4.x time is given over to solving disconnect/reuse socket/
ssl timeout flukes on windows right now, because I really want
to fix any remaining edge cases.  I do love hacking at autoconf
magic (heh heh), but can't get to it this moment.

If anyone else wants to play in the .m4 code, please 'steal this
idea' :)  Otherwise I am happy to do it, more on a timetable of
early next week though.
