Because those aren't around for more than a few days.  They're just
nightly snapshots.  You want to standardize on *one* tree, not some
random nightly snapshot.

APR is changing every day.  People commit and remove stuff all the
time.  APIs change.  Bugs are fixed, bugs are introduced.

It's not that the apr in httpd-2.0.44 is "better" than HEAD, it's
simply the fact that it's *well tested*.  Obviously httpd tested
against that snapshot, and so did the Subversion team.

If the apr folks allow it, sure.  Maybe they'd be nice enough to post
the 2.0.44 snapshot of apr there.

If not, I'm pretty sure we can post it on svn.collab.net.
