We have no control over APR.  APR will not make a release just because
the web server wants it to.  Apache needs to either use an already released
APR, or it needs to specify a date/time to check out APR.

APR is buildable on it's own, but people need to work on getting APR to a release

Woah.  Mod_ssl was put into the core for a reason.  I don't want to remove it
unless everybody wants to.  I am not sure that I even believe mod_ldap should
be a sub-project either.  I don't remember ever having that conversation.  But,
I will not stand in the way of it.

No.  They should use the config.m4 mechanism.  We are releasing them as
source, and they can easily be built inside the tree.  What's more, we can
easily use apxs to build them outside the tree.
