Yup. However, (IMO) we would be started from the API and moving code to fit
that API. That is going to impose some difficulty in terms of stealing code,
but *any* prior work is going to ramp up apr-client quickly.

It would be kind of cool for flood to get out of the socket business and
concentrate on its purposes: exercising, regression, and testing.

I'm guessing that we would keep the discussion on the dev@apr list rather
than spinning up another list. But I have no strong opinions there.

Independent of httpd effectively means APR. I guess you could be an httpd
subproject, but this has nothing to do with an HTTP server.

[ there is no way the board would establish a new PMC for this, speaking as
  one of those board members :-) ]
