I think the addition of apreq is a lot more work than people realise.  
There is a lot of duplicated code across the server, and I think a  
target for v2.6 should be to consolidate and remove the duplicated  
code, and depend on apreq properly. This will take a while to do, and  
will probably involve changes to the apreq API along the way.

Warning users that mod_request will be consolidated with apreq in  
future is a good idea.
