Thank you Max!  I know that others and I are all willing to review patches.
Just be prepared for a little give-and-take in getting them approved :)

Sounds right.  Folks have asked for a fallback-schema for users who
are willing to code alot of #if (APR_MAJOR_VERSION < 1) code into
their applications.  Would be a seperate macro to find apr-1-config,
or if not found, then find apr-config.

I raised this question - and the answer I heard was that apr + -util + -iconv
are all leaving the door together.

I'm sure these two both need help (including svn head), but it can occur 
after APR 1.0.0 is released.  Only the warm-fuzzies that it all plays well 
together would hold anything up.

I know that mod_jk2 is also very hokey, I need to spend some time over 
there after I finish cleaning up some win32 version-foo.
