When I have commit access to APR, yeah, I do.  =)  (That change to the 
util_date.h is because of me - actually, I think that you should just
assume that they have the latest build of Apache 2.0 if they are using
Apache 2.0 - it is still "beta" and I use that term loosely...)

Realistically though, APR is fairly stable API-wise.  There *are* 
going to be some minor changes and tweaks along the way.  But, they 
should all be for the better (like the util_date migration).

And, I guess, my point is that we should start that transition now.
Start to write a mod_jk that is built around APR.  By the time 
that is done, Apache 2.0 may even be release candidate.  Or not.
