I don't think they should be, or will be, abandoned either.  But the 
fact is that they were developed when we still had apreq_request_t 
and apreq_jar_t structs on the C side, so some of the apis no longer
make much sense now.

But if you can avoid the warts, and apparently you can, I think they're 
fine to use, and we shouldn't have any problem supporting them here.
It's not like they're terribly big or complex to maintain.  Besides, 
Apache2::Cookie is a nice application of APR::Request::Cookie-
they aren't functionally equivalent modules (one does
CGI::Cookie-compatible decoding, the other doesn't).
