-1 veto - there is no reason for us -not- to adopt apr 1.2.0.
I'm confused why we would be so pedantic as to not adopt a
current release?  APR signatures were broken on all 1.0/1.1
release for Win32, and yet, I see no reason why we shouldn't
just jump up to the version we want, and call it out as a
prerequisite.  From a version control perspective, this would
not be a subversion bump, it's a minor bump because we are now
actively maintaining a contract (broken for a long time, it seems.)

 From the mod_dav exports issue alone, I'm -1 calling this build
a beta.  It clearly isn't and needs to be fixed.

As to Nick's comment, I certainly agree with your position, there
is not enough adoption of APR to -not- roll in the apr/apr-util
for a general distribution, so beta's should have those packages
as well.
