My personal opinion:

APR is a *portability* library.  If it's functionality not aimed at making
applications more portable (or a helper for such functionality, as with
pools and hash tables and similar low-level data structures), then it
doesn't belong in APR.  We made a conscious effort to avoid having APR
become the kitchen sink (though it seems APR-util has become the kitchen
sink instead :-/ ).  Anyway, AIUI, that's the reason logging remained in
Apache and didn't go into APR.
