Not sufficient, IMHO, unless we add the appropriate indicators to allow
feature tests in apr 2.0.  E.g. the current test is VERSION_MAJOR >= 1
&& VERSION_MINOR >= 4 and the APR versioning contract says that test is
always sufficient.

This dialog reads like folks may assume the httpd MMN feature tests
work for APR functions, but there isn't such a feature test in APR.
