It is.  It's horribly inconsistent.

But APR offers a rock solid backwards compatibility assurance,
unlike httpd, or autotools, or many other projects.  At least,
withing a given APR major.x.x cycle.

But shipping APU 1.3.x means that current httpd 2.4 packages would
be broken with an httpd 2.2 install.  Not cool.


  apr-1.4/configure --prefix=/usr/local/; make; make install
  httpd-2.4/configure --prefix=/opt/test/newhttpd/; make; make install
  httpd-2.2/configure --prefix=/usr/local/; make; make install

Bad mojo.

I'll be certain to include this issue as a second item in the vote.
