*Sigh*, yes, fine, but APR is used by stuff other than httpd, some of 
which aren't servers. Subversion's one of them. It doesn't use ldap, but 
does use apr_util.

If the goal of this project is to produce a portable runtime, then it 
has to run on less-than-bleeding-edge machines (even if some features 
aren't available). If, OTOH, the goal is a portable runtime for httpd, 
then perhaps Subversion should reconsider its use of APR...

(No, I don't think having different flavours of the APR DLLs for 
different versions of Windows is acceptable.)
