Well, from an apr PoV, that's probably why the patch was ignored.  There
are constantly competeing forces at work to 1) make apr handle almost all
the dull tasks C programmers have to do, and 2) narrowly construe apr to
handle issues which need extra code to handle portability between platforms,
or bind diverse available library solutions into a unified interface.

So logging is outside the scope of apr in general, and a questionable fit
for apr-util;  HOWEVER, the unix syslog v.s. windows event log v.s. some
generic file-based logging for platforms which support neither, that's
a very appropriate fit into apr.  Of course the code all exists already,
it's a matter of porting the code from httpd to apr (and then reducing
the complexity of httpd by using the new apr interfaces ;-)
