Is your thinking to use a find_ap[r|u] setup that can resolve either/or
at ./configure-time?

Since we've acknowledged that apr/apu are hand-in-hand with 2.0, does it
make sense to merge these and distribute both, or to teach find_apu that
a found-apr satisfied its prerequisite?

It would be good to make this painless for combining httpd and other apps
to either 1.x or 2.x apr.
