I'm afraid you got it wrong. You haven't licensed code to Apache under
the AL - by signing a CLA, and committing code to Subversion, you have
donated your code to the ASF (or, more strictly speaking, licensed
your a copyright). It is the ASF, then, licensing it under the AL. If
it was not your intention to license the whole copyright, and if you
are not content with being recognized in the NOTICE file, that code
will have to go.
