This would likely work, but I wouldn't recommend it for official
builds.  You wouldn't want module authors to start depending on new
functionality in APR 1.3.x when most versions of Apache 2.2.x don't
have that.

That /might/ work, unless Apache is depending on new functionality in
APR 1.3.x, which it very well might be.  One of those "YMMV, if it
breaks you get to keep both pieces" kind of situations.
