Subject DO NOT REPLY [Bug 24325] apr_reslist doesn't work without threads

Well, #warning could still be used instead of #error - no harm done and still
some level of exact information. As I wrote, I only came up with this report
because I didn't know that [name your favourite unknown OS here] didn't support
threads, and the compiler messages didn't really point me in the right

But appart from that: Shouldn't source that checks for APR_HAS_THREADS avoid
#including apr_reslist.h in the first place instead of including but not using?
At least that's what I'd call 100% correct usage of APR_HAS_THREADS. So, if
they don't include, they won't get an error message. 
For those only 99% correct adding a conditional block around #include takes
just a few seconds, and I can assure you that little message would be greatly
appreciated by less experienced developers who have to remotely debug their
stuff with the help of a user who has almost no idea about programming.
