I dunno about all that, now. APR's job is to provide reliable
functionality across all platforms. Certainly that task includes
making up for shortcoming in those areas of operating systems that
have them. I think this is a perfectly reasonable thing to ask of
APR. If, in fact, there is a real permissions problem, the second
rename attempt would be allowed to fail with that error.

You really don't think APR should do this?
