You missed my point.  Your original message said that the first step was to
release APR.  That is incorrect.  We do not release APR on this list, and if
that is our first step, then it is broken.  We can either use a previously released
version of APR, or we can use a timed checkout.  APR should always never
be removing an API, once it is released, so we should be safe however.

I just refuse to let our first step be "release APR".
