Ok, good... if we decouple mod_session_crypto (until apr-2/1.x api is released)
and leave the rest, that would be just fine.  Folks at the short idea session
couldn't think, offhand, if it was strongly coupled to the whole mod_session
framework.  And it could be readded just as soon as apr releases (with an apr
rev check to enable).

So I'll update status with a patch to 'uncouple' and svn rm mod_session_crypto.c
after the branches/2.4.x/ exists, and we can probably extend such a script with
other 'very last minute' go/nogo decisions.
