Yeah... I'm -0.5 for changing stuff like that in Expat.  Don't get me
wrong... ++1 for changing it in apr-util itself.  =-)

BTW - The spiffy cool way to do file renames and get history preserved is
as follows:

(1) copy the ,v file to its new name
(2) move the old ,v file to the Attic
(3) remove all tags from the new ,v file
