Well JK using APR will be a good solution for every webservers but Apache 1.3.x.

Apache 2.x came with APR,  IIS, Domino and others should have no
problems to use an external APR library (.so, .dll).

So the remaining question will be shoud we drop Apache 1.3.x support
in future JK 1.2.x or should we start a 'new' APR JK 1.2.x based
implementation ?
