APR/APR-util 1.x won't work with httpd 2.0.x.  Someone continuing to use
2.0.x will need to hand-pick or backport fixes from apr/apr-util 0.9.x or
later levels.  But then they'll have to backport fixes from httpd too.  The
line was drawn at slightly different places for httpd vs. apr/apr-util, but
the long term picture is the same: There is effort to remain on httpd 2.0.x
if you want to pick up any code fixes, and the recommendation is clear.
