Well, for the apr_pvsprintf routine I disagree.  When out of mem, this
routine will segfault regardless of having registered an abort function
with the pool or not.  In the modified situation, the pools abort
function is called when out of mem and NULL is returned.  I know you
consider the latter unnecessary, but I try to think of other applications
using APR and thus pools which do not register an abort.  And to my
current knowledge even httpd doesn't do so.
