Changes with libapreq2-2.03-dev

- C API [joes]
  "Objectify" cookie/jar API: s/apreq_(make|serialize)_cookie/apreq_cookie_$1/
  and reordering args so the cookie/jar object is always the first argument.
  Macros added to provide source-compatibility with the old names.

- Perl API [joes]
  Added $upload->slurp($data), which reads the contents of the file
  upload "$upload" into the scalar "$data".

- C API [joes, randyk]
  apreq_run_(hook|parser) are macros, so they are capitalized now.
  Fixed apreq_params_as_string() and added apreq_params_as_array().
  and apreq_(parser|hook)_t, hopefully to be more Win32 friendly.
  Also updated the documentation.

- C API [joes]
  Compensate for a missing CRLF in empty file upload block, which 
  actually complies with RFC 2046 Section 5.1.1.  Konqueror (version unknown)
  and Mozilla 0.9.7 are known to emit such blocks.

- Perl API [joes]
  $req->upload() in list context failed to filter out non-uploads.
  Also $req->upload("nonexistent-key-name") segfaults.

- Perl test suite
  t/TEST.PL must run parent class' pre_configure to get the
  configuration right

- C API [joes]
  apreq_brigade_concat() wasn't supplying the final EOS bucket
  to large brigades (>256K), which somtimes caused the prefetch 
  loop in mod_apreq.c's apreq_filter() to hang.

- Documentation [joes]
  CHANGES file reformatted, removing dates & other clutter 
  as Stas suggests.

- C API [joes]
  Rewrote cgi_read() in apreq_env.c and reworked mod_apreq.c 
  to enforce apreq_env_max_body() settings.

- C API [joes]
  Fixed bug in url_parser code- missing context brigade was
  needed to track key-value pairs which span multiple buckets.

- C API [joes]
  API modifications: removed struct apreq_cfg_t, adding
  new apreq_env hooks max_body, max_brigade_len, and temp_dir.
  Folded apreq_parsers.h into apreq_params.h and modified the arguments 
  to apreq_run_parser() and apreq_run_hook(). Renamed 
  apreq_parser_t's content_type as enctype and apreq_copy_brigade()
  as apreq_brigade_copy().
  These changes make incompatible with earlier 

- Perl API [stas]
  Include ppport.h from blead-perl to support older perls.
  Add a proper support for ithreads.

- C API [Swen Schillig, joes]
  Fixed bug in calculation of Netscape cookie expiration dates.
  apr_time_t is measured in microseconds, not seconds, which
  threw off the arithmetic; apr_time_from_sec was needed for
  the conversion.

- C API [Max Kellermann]
  Fix segfault caused by invalid %-escape sequence in query string.
