No, it's not. That's a utility function for command-line tools, which is
a different beast. Our libraries lack an initialisation function that
would be guaranteed to run once per process in a single threaded
environment (like apr_initialize, for example). Even though we can add
such a function to the libraries now, we can't guarantee (that is,
require) the single-threaded initialisation before 2.0.
