This is a completely agreeable theory in an ideal world where our library
project is just beginning. The problem is we already have a near-complete
library, and even though we don't call it 1.0, many projects use and
*depend* on it. IMHO we should have reached 1.0 a long time ago, and
the fact that we have so many projects using it proves that.

I move that we implement a runtime version checking scheme in APR and
then release 1.0 as soon as possible, at the same time adopting the
above versioning definitions.
