Because, for the most part, APR isn't a problem.  As the RM for 2.2, I
wanted a new APR release to fix a few platform specific critical bugs
(like, pollsets on Solaris 10).  HTTPD can easily go forward with the
knowledge that some things just wont work until a new APR release is done.

Oh Please, don't give me that crap. Submit a patch, and it will get in
the next release. The bug you mention does not have a patch.  If it
matters so much to you, fix it yourself.

The current blocking issue in APR & APR-Util is that we can *only*
release apr and apr-util of the exact same version number, due to
problems in the Netware build system.  This means to release APR 1.2.0,
we must release APR-Util 1.2.0.  This is currently a problem, since
APR-Util is in flux from apr-dbd.  So, we either fix the Netware build
(I haven't a clue how), or we wait for apr-dbd to become more stable.
