I'll wait for another day, giving people time to react.

Umm, yea, that's where the previous 'can we host in the SVN repository?'
thread went into details. Brane suggested having a preprocessor translate
all string constants into arrays of hex-values. As Mark said, getting it to
work is their primary goal, after which integration is to be addressed.

Oh, there are some APR functions on OS/400 which have had their signature
changed by IBM (who didn't donate back to APR... :-( ) So, those issues
will need to be resolved too.

Erik.
