I'm sort of wondering about the whole path styles thing, actually.
APR says "/" works on any system, as long as one uses the APR library
calls (which we always do). The URL style is also "/". Therefore,
maybe we should just use "/" and get rid of all the style params?

(Something tells me we've talked about this before, though; was there
an objections to just using / everywhere?)
