AFAIK, all of the exported symbols in src/ap should be in the single
src/include/ap.h file.

It's a legacy issue that's on my list to fix.  No harm where it
is, but I was phasing in the changes and somehow never got to that
phase. :-)

I think it's needless, and I certainly prefer a single header
file when possible rather than requiring authors to track down
which individual one they need.  The src/ap stuff is supposed
to be all available from the ap.h file.
