Just so you are aware, list consensus has it that apr-util falls off
of trunk and becomes part of apr.  So I'd suggest this is a temporary
condition... fixing apr-util isn't really an interesting exercise ;-)

APR-trunk is not 2.0.0 yet, so that's a serious problem.  If other folks
are a handful of developers, it's not a problem, but it should push us to
make this transition.  If someone is shipping apr trunk, that's a big
mistake (theirs, not ours, we'll still ship the true apr 2.0 at some
point which will be grossly incompatible to such one-offs).

Part of this is the desire by Paul to move the project to scons.  I'm
prepared to merge the autoconf, but it's a bit more than an evening
project to combine apr and apr-util.  His hope was that scons is ready.
