<again, devil's advocate.>  (not sure what I think, but the conversation
is interesting)

I don't buy that the only projects we care about are open source.  I
always thought that the ASF's goal was to create good software that could
be used by anybody.  If it is true that the only software projects we care
about are open source then why does Apache run on any proprietary OS'es?

I agree APR will always be Open Source, but I disagree that the projects
that use APR will be, or that we will only care about those that are.
