This is how you deal with structure offsets in C. I had initially
suggested that mbk should write a function which maps a template
character to an apr_int32_t * using a case statement or a ? :
expression, in which case you could use more conventional C constructs,
but the table approach has its elegance too. But, since you can't write
&exp->tm_usec in a table initializer (in C89, at least), you have to use
the byte offset instead.

A comment might be appropriate, since this is a little-used feature of

Just noticed a naming bug, incidentally; the constant MILLI should
probably be named MICRO instead.
