As you know, there are no httpd 2.4 packages. Also, -deps is
an optional package for 2.4.x, and so although we provide
it, we don't know what versions people may or may not be
using... With 2.2, the "dependency" in much tighter.

As far as whether or not 2.2.x continues w/ apu-1.3 or moves
to apu-1.4, all I wanted was the *group* to decide, not
it just happen by a hidden fiat.

Anyway, my vote:

   [X]  Include apr-util 1.4.x in any httpd 2.2.x

With this specifically mentioned in the release announcement
(yes, we do list which versions, but it would be nice if we said:

    This release includes the Apache Portable Runtime (APR)
    version 1.4.5 and APR Utility Library (APR-util) version
    1.3.12, bundled with the tar and zip distributions. Previous
    versions of Apache httpd bundled APR-util 1.3.x.....

This is so we pre-warn people, just in case.
