Understandable; when we have something suitable for consideration as an
alpha, it's time to fork.  If we have something in trunk that is clearly
not slated for the next version, then we must fork, rm, and tag.

Right now I'm not clear that anything in trunk is destined for svn rm
from the 2.4 branch.  E.g. the mod_proxy devs are just as keen as the
aaa <require > refactoring and core httpd devs to put their changes
out there in the public sphere, and see what happens.

But the moment we have anything that looks like a beta, there is going
to need to be a fork.  Do you intend that 2.3.x branch -> 2.4.x branch
to be C-T-R or R-T-C?

APR v2.0 is irrelevant, IMHO.  It would be nice, but there is plenty of
work to do there, and since there are plenty of interfaces in need of
renaming and deprecation, out-of-sorts arg lists which can't decide if
apr_pool_t * is the first or last arg, by convention (yes, there was a
convention), and so on, I don't think we should 'wait' for apr 2.

If it beats httpd to release, great.  If not, oh well :)
