I don't see any reason why APR would not ship more than once a year. The 
big step was v0.9 to v1.0, the step to v1.0.1 or onwards is a no 
brainer, especially for a security release.

APR_FIND_APR allows you to install v0.x and v1.x simultaneously and 
choose between the two, but it will not help if APR is 
installed and used by subversion, while APR is used by httpd.
