Unfortunately, given our current track record, posting patches to the
bugdb isn't the best way to get them noticed, as I'm sure you have seen.

Whether or not to include a patch like this in APR 1.0.0 would of course
be the prerogative of David Reid since he's the Release Manager.  But I
can tell you that if I were RM, I'd say that a patch like this to fix a
bug would just have to wait for APR 1.0.1.  Build breakage might be one
thing, but after no less than *six* release candidates, then something
that's "just a bug" would seem to have little justification for holding
up the release at this late date.
