APR will be the future, but it still in changing state.
Do you want to works on a moving API ? 
We need a release and binary builds for majors OS....

Do you know that when Gal started mod_jk he's allready thinked 
using APR and decided to make some APR code like in mod_jk
to be able to use it later.

mod_jk major problem wasn't its native calls,  mostly LIBC/BSD sockets
widely available, but it's build. And JF Clere does an excellent
works which allow you to build it in minutes on all platforms 
supporting autoconf......

My opinion, and I like to see others J-T-C users/developpers is
that we could use APR in mo_jk when it will more stable and
allready installed in web-server. So APR/MOD_JK will be fine
when will start the move from Apache 1.3 to Apache 2.0.

At that time we'll have a release of THAT APR and have
it on others platforms supported by mod_jk, IIS, iPlanet, 
Netware, Windows......

My pragmatic opinion....
