 Thanks for the reply.
 What I meant was NOT to hard code that flag to RTLD_GLOBAL or something. Let the
 user specify(RTTD_GLOBAL/RTLD_LOCAL) what he wants in the httpd.conf file. And
 pass this value as a parameter to ap_dso_load() function.
 You can always keep the default value to RTTD_GLOBAL so that existing modules
 work. Right!
