Oh, not annoying at all, I didn't mean to imply that.

I guess I don't see a danger of breeding here. We try to do things in
APR where possible, and having a bit of portability code in Subversion
isn't going to make us more likely to put *more* portability into
Subversion. If the functionality gets move to APR, then +1 on
removing it obviously. If it's not in APR, though, then my preference
would be to leave the support rather than make Subversion less
portable. (I won't complain again if you decide to remove it,
though.)
