I didn't say they were decisions (which need to be made on-list), but
discussions.  *shrug*

They load them today, so your argument that we must prevent that in
2.0 is bollocks.  Frankly, the idea that APR is used without APR-util

life far simpler if we faced reality and combine them into one
library.  -- justin
