...only that tomorrow's apr might not be 100% compatible with today's.
Think of mod_ssl's and mod_dav's problem (the apache_1.3 version). They
must always add the apache_1.3 version number to their own version number
to describe the API they require. I would not like a
   apache-1.3.30-mod_ssl-2.8-20-apr-1.0.14
kind of delivery scheme.
