I think that's too restrictive to be honest. APR provides a layer,
which Apache uses as it wants (as I see it). Just because the user
decides not to use a threaded MPM shouldn't mean we need to hold/restrict
what APR provides to Apache, esp when one considers Apache being
much more than "just" a web server.

One shouldn't have to rebuild APR when switching MPM, imo.
