I can see that happening eventually, but we are still in that between
period where the new API has complete parts (except apr_global_mutex_t,
coming soon); but not all applications are using the new API. Even over
the last month or two since I wrote the first set of new lock APIs I've
seen new uses of apr_lock.h. I try to point this out when I see them,
but I don't have much visibility of APR outside of httpd and flood. This
patch makes it obvious what APIs are going away, and what new ones should
be used instead.
