Both good reasons to call .33 or .34 the GA release, based on Beta feedback.

And one last good reason [external API change] ... we were discussing the
deprecation of the apr_lock API in favor of the specific apr_lock objects
that Aaron has advanced.  I'm not sure of the status, but if we plan to do
so, that is another big change don't want to foist on the world after GA.

I thoroughly expect the apr group will want to call apr release 1.0 once
a major project [e.g. Apache or Subversion] releases a GA based upon it, 
and work from there.

One thing this means is that all the ap_ -> apr_ compat.h changes probably
don't belong to the apr project at all, they belong to httpd-2.0/include.
APR will need to maintain their own apr_foo -> apr_bar changes in the
apr_ compat.h from 1.0 on forward.
