Subversion also uses APR (http://subversion.tigris.org) which is fast
becoming a very popular Revision control system.

Also not that APR started as a split of the pooling code that is in Apache
1.3.  just separated out as a library so more than just apache could
use it, and much more functionality added.

The biggest reasons to use APR, is pool method of memory management,
the portability built into APR, supporting many unix-like environment
and win32, and the threading portability.
