Follow-up to this that's been on my TODO list (though anyone can do it
if they so desire):

    Change APR_ARRAY_PUSH definition from
       #define APR_ARRAY_PUSH(ary,type) (*((type *)apr_array_push (ary)))
       #define APR_ARRAY_PUSH(ary,type,item) \
               (*((type *)apr_array_push (ary))) = item

And for what it's worth, I agree with the other assessments in your
mail (though I'm not terribly bothered about the log_receiver taking
changed_paths as a hash instead of an array).
