There is no reason to wait until 2.0. The versioning guidelines allow us
to provide new symbolic names in 1.x versions.

As long as APR_REG and friends exist in all 1.x versions, then everything
is fine. If 1.1 happens to include a new APR_FILETYPE_REG, then there
isn't a problem.

IOW, I'd encourage you to reconsider your veto. I don't see the problem
that you're trying to prevent.

Cheers,
