One more thought; if Jim in anxious to roll and we need to roll 1.2.x
that's fine by me.

With httpd-2.0, I had patched apu-config to report ldap bindings entirely
separately from the core bindings.  That worked great, because next to
nothing was abstracted, and mod_ldap/util_ldap alone were bound to the
ldap bindings.  The various support/ tools and core httpd loaded just fine
without all the cruft.

With httpd-2.2 and apr-1, this is now impossible, so I consider 2.2 to
be essentially broken for practical purposes (except for rolling it on
each and every machine individually).  It's really somewhat shabby.

So I don't have any opinion on a 2.2.9 without apr-1.3.0 + dynamic ldap.
If folks want it now, great.  I'm only keen to rip these direct bindings
out of httpd, and even out of the core of apu, leaving us with a very
clean server until a user actually uses ldap auth modules, and a release
of 1.2.x is no skin off my back.

Do folks feel we should release "an apr+apu" this friday?  If 1.3.0 has
settled in, then that is the release.  If not, a final 1.2.x release
instead, in the interim?
