Actually it caused me a great deal of problems - hours spent tracking
down a bug in mod_dtcl, that as far as I can tell, is caused by this

I don't think it's right that two pieces of software can declare the
same struct and have them come out different things... there's
something wrong.  You can convince me that it's Apache, libc, Tcl,
mod_dtcl, or whatever else, but something doesn't seem right to me.
