FYI .. It looks like we do not have this function in the OS/400 port of
APR either. We have already had to implement an APR "wrapper" layer for
our port anyway, to hide any EBCDIC issues, so I assume we could just add
a function with this name into our wrapper and copy in the current
Subversion workaround for the implementation?
