Self standing?  If apr is borked (and the oo-dev'ers prove it)
do you want another layer in the middle?  This probably should
be closely paired to apr to ensure communications and direction.
Having them both under the same pmc ensures that the apr project
doesn't go off on some weird tangent that interferes with oo 
implementations (not that I expect this would happen.)

Happy to encourage it and I'll present it (with myself as a
list moderator) to the apr project, and invite our modperl
friends along with John Sterling and others who have created
C++ wrappers.

This sort of surprises me coming from an ASF java developer.
I seriously doubt this team would find it amusing to discover
org.apache.catalina namespaces populating an xml project's code.

-1 on appropriating another ASF project's namespace (the same -1 
I should have offered to forking proxy.) +/-0 if you want to build
on org.apache.jk.apr namespace.
