Sounds fine to me.  Only suggestion that I'd make is not to use floating 
point numbers, but rather whole numbers.  Use apr_strtoi64() or something 
on the string value.  I'm not 100% sure that strtof is portable enough.  It 
probably is, but I'm not sure what the floating point will buy us anyway.
