I'm in favor of including it in APR, but opposed to trying to
retrofit it into Apache before 2.0 GA.  My rationale for this
is that, even with a reference-counted string class, we'll have
to be extremely careful not to make performance worse when doing
a major change in the string handling.  (And we're close to having
all the really significant strlen and strdup inefficiencies fixed
in httpd-2.0 already.)
