Yes.  We are a library.  We *have to* maintain backward compatibility as
outlined by http://apr.apache.org/versioning.html.  That is the guarantee
we have made to those using our library.  Even if it means maintaining
brokenness we accidentally included.

If a program compiled on 1.0.0, it must also compile on 1.0.1.  Period.
