Although we do no use the apr_(package name) convention, IMHO, it is very
easy to determine which package is being referenced by the function.  Most
of them have some reference to the package.  i.e. ap(r)_procattr_*,

The documentation for the apr library functions is actually quite
complete.  Everytime a function is written, it is fully documented, so
when an actual release is made, hopefully the documentation issue for apr
will go away.
