We'd probably need to be able to update ap-httpd for the needs of the
next httpd release (with the same API/ABI-changes constraints for
both, i.e. httpd's), and hence ship them together.

That would also help implementing useful things to/in both httpd and
APR (as trunk/next proposal), and use them immediatly in httpd without
requiring APR next or putting stub in httpd core (the stub would be in
ap-httpd, eg. like the ap_cstr_casecmp we are currently discussing,
and once httpd requires the next APR version for other reasons, this
stub would become a single #define).
