Note that APR has already decided on a versioning scheme (insofar as any
decision is firm for longer than a few months :-).

HTTPD should pick a version of APR and stick with that. In particular, it
should stop trying to include the latest CVS into its source tree. As
APR(UTIL) has stabilized, there is less and less of a reason for HTTPD to
track HEAD. Of course, if HTTPD requires a change in APR(UTIL), then the
right people can apply the patch, crank out a new dot release, and then you
bounce the min requirement for APR(UTIL) in the HTTPD bits.
