I'm working on a patch to the Perl bindings to be able to test this.
The test coverage for the Perl bindings are really awful - most of the
newer numbered method calls are exported but are not tested and many
probably don't work anyways. In specific, there isn't any support in
the Perl swig stuff to map generic apr_hash_t* to Perl hashes (there are
a couple of specific implementations like for svn_config_t). I find the
swig stuff to be opaque and confusing, with lots of what looks like
duplicated effort everywhere, but I'm trying to muddle through come up
with as small a change I can make to implement PROPHASH (which will at
least get mkdir3 working so we can test it).

I have some time to myself tonight, so hopefully I'll have something to
report...

John
