Correct... APR is well on its way to releasing 1.0, in fact, IIRC the big
showstopper is finishing the versioning API and some stand-alone build

If we maintain backwards compat, HTTPD_2_0_RELEASE will always hang
out back in APR_0_9_final.  httpd can continue to trust the APR api through
the end of this cycle.

APR 1.0 flushes away all the deprecated APIs.  This is why I suspect that
httpd 2.2.0 release would coincide with the APR 1.0 release.  The library
project has rules defined on forwards and backwards compatibility once the
APR 1.0 point occurs.
