My gut feel is this:

APR should be the basic portability library, for individual functions 
that need to be made portable.

APR-util is for general package portability, with things like LDAP and 
XML that are almost portable but not quite, but that have general 
applicability across platforms.

APR-foo is for a specific feature, not general enough for the apr-util, 
but available for a specific package if necessary, and based on APR's 
structures and mechanisms (pools, etc).

Something that might be considered is for APR to grow into something 
along the lines of Java Commons, but for C.
