Whoops I sent this to John only

Hey Guys,

I'm in the process of moving back to Colorado so I haven't been keeping
an eye on Subversion.
I have a whole bunch of low level code which uses apr_pools etc. It's
at least two years old though.
I'm going to be shuting down all my boxes in the next 24 hours, I should
be back up in CO in a week.
Is the SQL work topping the priority list?

I doubt I'll be able to help much in the next 30 days but I will dig out
that code next week if folks are in a hurry and want to take a look at
it. I'm pretty sure I have it on two boxes and tape.
