Because then I would have to require that APR be installed, which is a
lot harder than just requiring say apache-1.3.30.

Right now, most people do something like rpm -Uvh apache-1.3.29....rpm
and things work.  If APR were distributed with apache-1.3.30, then I
could say "requires apache-1.3.30" and it would not be much of a stretch
to have them install it.

It should be possible for many modules to keep a single codebase for
both Apache 1.3 and Apache 2.x, with minimal #defines around areas
that manipulate BUFF vs filters and brigades.  Right now, it is not.
