Done. But I am still not convinced by your arguments. I got confused a lot by this
and just thought there was a typo / something left from the last release. So maybe
this paragraph should go somewhere else on the page, but not in the announcement
section for APR (which only announces the release of APR in contrast to the 0.9.x
section which announces a release of APR-util as well).
But to be honest currently I have no idea where.
