Not in mod_perl. Once apreq gets integrated into httpd-2.0, it becomes 
httpd-2.0. So mod_perl-2.0 autogenerates the glue Perl code just like it 
does for the rest of the apr_ and ap_ APIs. Apache::Request becomes an 
integral part of mod_perl and you get the updates automatically every 
time mod_perl is released.

I don't know about Tcl.

The main issue with integrating apreq with 2.0 is the reluctance of the 
httpd-dev people to accept it based on my preliminary asking around. 
Therefore we need a support from other projects like Tcl, before we can 
start pushing for the integration.

And most important: we need to come up with good arguments why httpd 
should want to absorb apreq. Let's here your arguments.

Are there any other projects using the C apreq API?
