They're not supported, yet. libapreq hasn't changed in over 1y, so
modern standards are not included.  We are working to fix that.  It
might be a good idea if you subscribed to the 
mailing list, as your comments are certainly on-topic.

Unfortunately, no.  I'm certainly willing to help with this, but if
you need to meet a pre-2001 deadline, I'd expect to be paid well for it,
too :)

I'm sure we can help with that, just post diffs to the apreq-dev list.

Jim Winstead is the new maintainer.  He's working hard on getting a
service release out there that fixes all old bugs, but I think he's
holding off on new features for the moment.  However, posting patches
to the list would be most welcome.  One 
of the expressed goals for apreq is for the library to be useful to 
_all_ apache-related projects, not just mod_perl related ones.
