Your list of potential functions looks mostly good to me (haven't sat
down and thought too hard about it though).

I think the question is whether or not there is a predefined limit to
what goes in apr-util.  We've hit this recently with the crypto/ stuff.

I think it probably means that some of the committers need to work on
things outside of httpd itself.  When I wrote the mod_mbox stuff and 
had to write a standalone indexer, I needed the date and uri functions 
from httpd.  I initially copied them over, but then, since I now have 
commit access and no one screamed too loudly, I moved them into 
apr-util (with some help on the httpd side) and deleted my private 
copy.  But, I think this will have to be done on a case-by-case basis 
with lots of thought for each one.  

There also needs to be a guiding vision for apr-util as well.  I'm not 
sure what that is exactly.  =)  I think we might be able to define that

I'd be curious to look at subversion to see if it is duplicating any 
code, but the domains are so different, I doubt there is a lot of
overlap.  The more users of apr-util, the more we can identify things
that might be worth migrating from httpd into apr-util.  But, you
are always free to copy the code if we don't move it into apr-util.
