As I said: inside Apache, there's no reason not to change it.
But I don't know how many 3rd party modules out there use
ap_popenf() for other stuff, and perhaps rely on the open fd's staying
open across an exec.  (That's probably different with
ap_open_piped_log() because a piped log is seldom used in an
exec()ed child.)

So, it's safer to stick with the ap_popenf_ex() duplication.
