Yes, I was thinking along those lines, too (all APR pools have a common
ancestor, there's exactly one "really" global pool in APR). The trouble
is that changes to APR tend to take quite a while to show up in
distributions. And, this being a new API, we'd only be able to add it in
APR's trunk, not back-port is to the released branches.
