Here on the list and at every hackathon/ApacheCon for the last few years.

That's part of the discussions that have been here on list, but
frankly, I've never seen anyone say how a dynamic APR would work
reliably.  In fact, I think the eventual consensus was that
splitting-off approach could never work at all.

*shrug*

How many apps use APR but not APR-util?  I don't know of any.  All of
the consumers I know about use both.  So, they're getting it anyway
today.  -- justin
