No, [0] as default means the app was built for an older APR_FIND_APR,
e.g. 0.9 - and every modern user can choose between [1] and [0 1] 
depending on the amount of compatibility effort.

Anyone trusting that a shared apr_find.m4 installed in aclocal.m4 does the
'right thing' needs the reassurance that svn, apache etc will pick apr 0.
