Yeah, I know. I almost put a disclaimer on my original question that I
knew this was an easy function to write. strlen is also a very easy
function to write, but I prefer not to reinvent wheels, even very
small ones :)

It just seems a little strange to me that this kind of functionality,
which I suppose most module developers need, and which you correctly
point out is so easily implemented, is not provided by the APR.
