How so?

Let's imagine the release -after- 2.2 takes another 12-18 months.
Perhaps the event mpm gets plugged in, and it takes three months,
alone, just to find all the gotchas of thread-jumping.

In the meantime, apr is adopted by other projects.  These coders
offer up some solid functionality for their own applications, and
the apr team agrees.

Yes, I realize most of the time new functionality can be a minor
bump of apr.  Yes, I realize apr has not been all that active in
the past 12 months.  All I'm arguing is that apr shouldn't be
addicted to some 1:1 correspondence of httpd and apr bumps.
