The situation with APR is no different than say BerkeleyDB.  You can't
have the perl glue compiled against one major version and expect it to
work in applications which are linked to another.  Once httpd-2.2 comes
out, modperl-2 users that want to upgrade the new server must recompile 
modperl-2, and because the libapr's are incompatible, that recompile 
must include APR.
