How so?  Our license policy doesn't allow people to recycle our trademarks.
And it says nothing about re-implementations at all, AIUI.

They can do just about *anything* with the code by design, but not with the
Apache APR name itself.  The same will be true for Apache Subversion.

Replacements can *never* use an Apache project name without explicit
permission.  Only Apache Software Foundation code can be called "Apache Foo".
