There was a thread a few weeks ago where we realized that this would 
be impracticable.  If httpd 2.0 only used APR 0.9.1-dev (say), then a 
lot of applications want to be compatible with httpd 2.0 (say 
modules).  Therefore, they want a stable APR release that works with 
httpd 2.0 above all else.  If we abandon APR 0.9.1 and move to 1.0, 
then we're abandoning them.

Therefore, what we have right now must be APR 1.0.  Any changes going 
forward *must* be APR 2.0 only.  We can't drop deprecated functions 
in APR 1.0 nor can we alter function signatures in APR 1.0 from what 
we have right now.

We've already started 2.0, but we just haven't admitted it.  -- justin
