That could be a respectable eventual goal.  For now, I think we just need
to keep track of which things have been written for APR and attempt to
maintain cross-publicity as much as possible.  If the body of APR-ized
works becomes as massive as that of the list of Perl modules (wow), then
something more centralized perhaps.  :)
