It does seem like existing callers could reasonably depend on the 
existing behaviour, and that changing it would break them.

So I'd say it's either a new API guarantee (can't be done in 1.3.x) or 
it's simply an API change (can't be done in 1.x).

Also note the extra confusion that apr_pool_pre_cleanup_register will 
have different behaviour in APR 1.3.0 to releases after r678139, and 
that would affect the APR-util API.
