I'm very much +1 for this, but agree with Justin.

Nah, it's not aimed at the same set of developers.

If it's not we can host it elsewhere, but I don't see why it shouldn't
be hostable by the asf. I'd actually like to see us expand the examples

maybe apr-util as well.

It's one thing that i think is holding back apr a little.
