Since we're talking general principles...

Any improvements which require an API change need to be weighed against
the fact that an API change increases the effort required by Apache
1.3 users to pick up fixes, particularly those users which use
binary-only third-party modules.

No Apache user would want to wait for a crucial third-party module to
be rebuilt for the API change before being able to move to Apache
1.3.whatever to pick up a security fix.
