Well, that doesn't matter to our external projects.  (And, huh, it's already 
named like that for me when it's installed.)

No, that doesn't matter: if you want to assume bundled APR is less than 1.0, 
use the same find_ap{ru}.m4 you are right now.

Again, not a concern at all.  If you want to accept apr-0 *only*, then don't 
upgrade to this find_ap{ru}.m4.

It's not like all of the projects would magically upgrade to this: they have 
to choose to upgrade to this m4 version.  -- justin
