Subject Re: [RT] what's the roadmap?

I'd like to see the APR::* into a separate package on CPAN and apreq to stay
as it is now. Why?
Because it can be used on different environments and different servers.
For example I want to use apreq with ActiveState's PerlEx on IIS without the
need to install Apache and mod_perl.
