So have one of the many APR developers on the HTTPD team roll an APR 
release if you need a fix.  There is absolutely zero reason that APR 
releases need to be infrequent.  Don't make one problem (totally random 
versions of APR being distributed out into the wild) worse in an attempt 
to avoid another problem (infrequent APR releases).  Just fix the second 
problem and be done with it.

Having HTTPD ship CVS snapshots of APR is inexcusable.  There's no 
reason that HTTPD is special, it should be using released versions just 
like everyone else.
