Specifically, what I'd like to do is rename our Apache::*
modules to APR::* (dropping the above @ISA relationship), 
and provide back-compat APIs for Apache::Request & friends. 
The Apache::* compat modules would simply use their APR::* 
counterparts as a base class, and we'd have one mixin:

  @Apache::Request::ISA = qw/APR::Request Apache::RequestRec/;

That moves these API defects into the compat modules,
which is just fine with me.  And we don't have to index 
these compat modules on CPAN, unless we want to obsolete
the existing 1.x versions.
