Excelent !

Whatever is simpler.

One solution would be to create a common_apr and wrappers for the existing
functions in common, using apr.
All platfrom-dependent code should be in common, and we could use the
current common in parallel with  common_apr until it is stable and tested
on all cases.

I know apr is supposed to work everywhere and with any server, but I
wouldn't remove the current code until it is actually tested. I'm quite
scared of what'll happen on Windows + IIS for example...

The jk_ stuff in common was supposed to be very close to APR as API, 
so maybe a better idea would be to (temporary) use 

#ifdev ARP
  apr_function
#else 
  jk_function
#fi

If needed, you could change the jk_ APIs to match the APR function.

Just leave the existing makefiles in, in time someone could include that
in the configure code.
