I know the goal is to use apr for service abstraction.  It would be nice 
if someone with more knowledge of it give a shot from configuration 
point of view.  I think subversion has support to use either installed 
or "embedded" version of it.  

We definitely have need to use apr in the build tree without installing 
it first.

That came to my mind initially, technically the easiest thing to do.

The client key and certificate might be different for each connection 
and not directly related to connection itself.  The ugly bit is that 
you would need to pass paths to local filenames in the uri and often, 
in practice, construct them on fly.  Something else might be nicer, but 
I don't know what. 

I don't have any strong feelings either way, just what seems right.  Any 
good arguments?
