Well, I think that 2.0.36 should have had one, given the API changes that we
made to APR and other parts.

That would give you binary compat, but not semantic/compilation compat.
Thus, you still need the MMN bump.

People will need to be more rigorous about MMN bumps so that we can see what
other API changes were made.

Note that APR(UTIL) changes will need to be reflected up into Apache's MMN.
I've started a document to describe the APR Group's versioning policy. I'll
post that later this week.
