I think the bit that divides these in two is APR v2.0.

People have begun refactoring APR to produce APR v2.0, and alongside
this will be a corresponding refactoring of httpd, that I think should
be httpd v3.0.

I think httpd v2.4 should be what we have now, against the latest APR v1
we have now, which is the APR v1.4 branch.

I think practically we should focus on getting httpd v2.4 out the door,
and make httpd ready for v3.0 to happen, against APR v2.0.
