+1 on that wrapping. I want to have wrapper not because I feel APR
broken but because I don't want to broke mod_jk rigth now.
The large majority of Apache sites still use Apache 1.3 and
having Apache 1.3 + APR + thread could be a nigthmare, but when
playing with Apache 2.0, where APR is allready in, it will be a
great choice !!!!!

Even more elegant.

I think some commiters like JF Clere will be pleased to works
on APR port to mod_jk and may be a great help here ;)

I and others (costin, kevin, andy, mike) could still works on
core business ....
