I guess what I was thinking about was someone who didn't care about mod_perl
or httpd at all.  that is, suppose I'm a user that simply wants perl
bindings to APR - theoretically I could download only the APR/APU source and
then build only the APR bindings, thus giving me only APR:: packages in
site_perl, no httpd (or eventually whole mod_perl?) download required.
isn't this the point of having perl's APR run outside of mod_perl?

now, sure, these APR:: classes wouldn't then work with a mod_perl built
against a different httpd/apr, but the mod_perl install would overwrite the
old ones anyway in a typical install.

or maybe I'm just confused (which I seem to be alot lately, sorry).
