Anything that allows Java to do things only native apps can do instead 
of beeing as dumb as the dumbest platform is worth the effort :-)

JTC already has some apr and jni code ( it is true, using the dead jk2 
model ), why not start there and if it grows big enough move to commons?

BTW - it would be really great if it would use the SWT model, i.e. JNI 
methods matching exactly the APR signatures and param types, with 
minimal ammount of C wrapper code. It works really well, and it's the 
easiest to maintain and fastest of all JNI flavors I've seen.
