Hmm. We would then need to coordinate across the two libraries. A bit of a
possible headache.

Well, I think that was a bit different. There were potentially other users
of the APR functions by that point. By including that header in APR, it was
saying "we changed our names, but will provide this header for you."

APRUTIL *starts* with a new set of names, and Apache is the person who needs
to compensate.

In other words, there are no APRUTIL users other than Apache that are
affected by the rename. Any third-party Apache modules will have the
"compat" header available via Apache.
