Using APR pools "better"


At ApacheCon's welcoming event last night, Greg, Sander and I were chatting and Greg reminded us that the Subversion project "learned a lot about using APR pools" and it seems to me that a lot of that knowledge is likely missing in httpd-land. I also know that some of that has been backported back to APR itself, but I am wondering (as I am wont to do), if we couldn't do a better job here. I am sure that there are things in svn that could be easily and readily folded back into APR w/o breaking anything.

I know that some of that influenced Greg's PoCore work, but it would be really cool if someone in Subversion could maybe point out some of those improvements and "lessons learned" so that both APR and httpd could benefit.

Thx!
