Releasing an apr-util alongside apr is a simple thing to do, so to say 
that it's "blocking" an apr release is a bit extreme.

However making sure that apr-util and apr can be released separately is 
a good thing.

Apr-util still has some lingering dependancies on the unix build system 
within apr (like libtool and some other files). It would be nice if 
apr-util could access apr cleanly via the apr-1-config mechanism, rather 
than depending on build artifacts. This has been on my plate to fix for 
a while, but time has not been on my side.
