Microsoft's C compiler, to name only one, still does not provide most of
the C99 features. I don't know about standard library support.

However, I don't see where you gain with using strtol(). First of all,
it was already in C89 and has effectively the same interface as the APR
conversions. C99 added strtoll() but it has the same interface. What's
the benefit?
