No issue on MS, plenty of more modern compilers, but MS C has been MS C++
with all sort of other oddities forever.

I am thinking oddballs like hpux and old Solaris compilers, but in trunk do
we really need to keep accommodating for httpd 2.6/3.0?

In the test suite, since it is used to validate legacy httpd, it seems
prudent to keep compatibility for a while longer still.
