The target audience for APR is tech-savvy: developers and
integrators.  HTTPD has a larger and more mixed audience.
I'd say that puts on us a greater burden of care, including
crucially a proper review of changes in 1.3, before
bundling it in a release version of HTTPD.

As an example of what I'm concerned about, I'd point to
the serious security issue I recently documented in
mod_dbd (trunk version of docs).  APR-UTIL 1.2 excludes
the dangerous driver; 1.3 includes it.

Can we enumerate other potentially-serious issues?
