In general, I'm not really comfortable with adding a large amount of perl 
code to our tree.  httpd is a C project not a perl project - I'm not 
overjoyed at the prospect of having to maintain perl code.  I, of course, 
am from the camp that anything in our tree I am collectively responsible 

Additionally, I think merging apreq should be something for 2.4 not 2.2. 
Adding it right *now* would cause a lot of delays.  For example, from a 
quick glance, they use automake - which is a big no-no.  So, it'd take a 
lot of effort to get it integrated in our build system.  I really think 
that effort would best be placed in getting a solid 2.2 release out sooner.

If there is still a lot of interest, this can be something we merge in 
right after we branch 2.2.x off into 2.3.x.  And can be an impetus for 
2.4.x's release.

So, -0 in concept.  And, -1 for doing it today - it's not in a state that 
can just slide into our tree at all without issues.  -- justin
