Hmm. Good point, but I think it also depends a bit on how you look at APR.

As a "Runtime", it can contain any kinds of functionality. And the
"Portable" is just an adjective.

Alternatively, if you have a "runtime to create portability" ... then yah:
your point would hold.

Just playing the devil's advocate :-)

I'm still in favor of apr-client. If we want to rename the top-level CVS
directory at some point, then fine...
