There is 'apr_set_abort' which does the latter, documented in
apr_general.h (not apr_pools.h, of course), implemented in

Apache 2 doesn't seem to use apr_make_sub_pool, it uses apr_create_pool
instead. The comment for apr_create_pool (in apr_general.h, not
apr_pools.h) says:

 "the new pool will inherit all of it's parent pool's attributes,"

Yet, the apr_create_pool definition in misc/unix/start.c does:

    newpool->apr_abort = NULL;

before returning.

(Despite the name, misc/unix/start.c seems to be used by the Win32 +
BeOS ports of APR too, and is not much to do with "starting" either.)
