Nah. If a library uses that, and an app uses the range and the library, then
you'll have conflicts again.

There is no answer, short of altering APR's error mechanism. The short
answer is that "apr_status_t" would need to include an "authority" component
that specifies who is defining the particular error ID.

It's really an insoluable problem, so I would not suggest that we bother
with it. I'd much rather see us punt than to pretend that we have a solution
which isn't going to work anyways.

Consider me -0.5 on the proposal. If you *do* go ahead with it, then please
summarize my issues in the comments about the symbol. (thx)
