The problem is that the v2.0.x code was not very defensive, which means 
a simple failure up front causes an obscure and random crash somewhere 
further down in the code. The fixes as a result were relatively large 
and difficult to review for v2.0.x. Some of the fixes involved new and 
changed interfaces to apr-util which were difficult to backport.

As a result the v2.0.x code lags far behind v2.2, and backporting fixes 
is a not trivial task. I think the effort is better spent getting v2.2 
out the door.

v2.2 has been branched, not sure when the first actual release on this 
branch will be?
