Right, but this is not the case for apr_anylock.
It has APR prefix and is independent of any APU
code because it is macro based.
So, I see no reason why it cannot be the part of APR
because its main purpose is to abstract the APR lock API.
The only usage of APU based functionality would be
to have the user provided lock/unlock callbacks, but that
would change the API itself.
