Right on!

To expand on what Greg is saying, this has been our practice all
along. For example, the current apr_transfer_file_contents() function
in APR began life as apr_copy_file() in *Subversion*. We had a note
that when it was done and tested, it would get moved into APR. It got
done, and tested, and reviewed, and now it lives in APR.

The important thing is to get the code you need, writing it if
necessary. If you think it's something that belongs in APR, then
write it in the APR-style and assume it will live there when ready.
