I don't think it belongs in APR at all. There is no standard mechanism
for identifying a L3 protocol in a Listen block. I don't think it'll do
for APR to invent one arbitrarily. Better that each application handle
it in whatever means they deem appropriate.

httpd's particular listen syntax is entirely irrelevant to APR :-)
