So say you.  That's the price you pay for backwards compatbility.  If 
*you* want to be backwards-compatible, *you* have to do this check. 
If you don't like the preprocessor, you can code it up via 
apr_version and do it at run-time.

About the only thing we could do to moderately help out is to add:
APR_VERSION_AT_LEAST(major, minor, patch, final).  That would sort of 
hide it a bit.  But, that's not going to help you since you'd have to 
compile against an APR that doesn't have it.  =)

I don't see why we have to go to 0.9.3 because you don't want to do 
the check properly.  The point is that there is a way of determining 
if you are at 0.9.2-dev versus 0.9.2.  -- justin
