IIUC - these are not API problems, they are bugs?

Let's keep moving.  Only one reason to stop and rethink, either
it doesn't install correctly (or clobbers binary-incompatible APR-0's),
or something is so broken the API must be changed.

None of those are on my radar now.

Mladen - no reason not to fix those bugs, and they will be picked
up in 1.0.1.  Nobody is ready to release software based on APR 1.0,
it didn't exist.  Once we release, they beta.  They will find bugs.
By the time they actually have stable code for APR 1.0, we will
have caught up to 1.0.2 or beyond w/ bug fixes.  None of which
should possibly break their code, unless they are relying on some
broken behavior and apr code errors..

As David mentioned, sorry if his response was harsh.  If you haven't
followed the progress, it's been, uhm, glacial at best :)  

Carry on.
