Please don't. The problem is nearly solved - I'll have a patch out for
review by the end of today.

As for testing, this is a fairly localized change, fairly easy to review and
be confident of its effects.

Additionally, it requires a change to the arguments of the APR_FIND_APR
autoconf macro. It will be far less painful for external to require
"find_apr.m4 from apr-1" rather than "find_apr.m4 from apr-1.0.1 or later".

APR 1.0 has taken quite a while to happen - it would be a great shame to
push it out the door just ahead of an important interface change.

Max.
