I don't really need the status quo "explained" to me in a README file.  
I proposed to fix it, because it is (to me, obviously) broken.

1) The tip of development for the apr-util tree is what is currently 
branches/1.5.x.  Yes, most of that code also exists in the apr tree.  
apr-util releases and branches do not come from the apr tree, they come 
from the apr-util tree.

2) I have hard-coded into my brain the convention that the trunk is the 
trunk, not a branch named by its current version.  I also have scripts 
which make this assumption.

3) The trunk called branches/1.5.x will have to be renamed to a trunk 
called branches/1.6.x if 1.5.x gets cut.  Which is dumb.

4) Yes, "people" might get confused if they try to use apr-util's trunk 
with the APR 2.x, but, meh.  We are the people who use the VCS and it 
should be arranged for our convenience.

Regards, Joe
