No worries, it's a minor polish issue that allows the 
APR_DOTTED_VERSION to match the generated soname. I
brought it up now because it wasn't an issue in the 0.9.X
releases.  If binary compatibility has been stable since 
apr started generating libapr-1.so.0.0.0, then changing the 
soname would be a bad idea.  OTOH if it has broken recently, 
then bumping the number might be worth consideration.

No- libapreq2's dependency on apr is solely through apr-config.
Whatever decision is made on the soname will not impact libapreq2.
However, adjusting its name to apr-1-config will likely us
avoid problems in the future (since we're tied to httpd-2.0's ABI).
