I think there are two other options. I've listed all them in my order
of preference.

1) Don't APR'ize JK and keep Apache 1.3 support
2) APR'ize JK
3) start a new APR JK 1.2 based
4) drop Apache 1.3 support

I'd like to keep Apache 1.3 support going longer. If 1 is ruled
out, I'd want APR to be build separately and loaded via the
LoadFile directive. The JK2 integrated build of APR and
static linking is/was to complex. If there's consensus to go
with option 2, I would be willing to do the work on the Apache
1.3 native build.
