I completely concur.  Also, httpd or other cvs users who are using 
non-apr tags can be really messed up with a simple cvs up -r FOO.

Perhaps the simplest thing for httpd users is to modify srclib/CVS/Entries
and remove the D/apr[-util/-iconv]//// lines.  This prohibits CVS from
drilling down into those directories from httpd or other project's commits.
