Assuming the APR::* modules currently in mod_perl can be 
packaged in a separate distribution, one way to accommodate 
both viewpoints is to include the sources for the libapreq2 
library in both httpd (used for the Apache mod_apreq2) and 
also in a separate Perl distribution (used for APR::Request 
and friends).
