M4 is scheduled for "real soon". That is effectively defined as "usability
bugs fixed", and are mostly related to stabilizing network activity.

APR kind of has to stay because we sinclude() some of its scripts into our
configure script. We shouldn't have any problem using a system-installed
Neon, provided its revision is compatible.
[ generally, we have both a min *and* max version (since the API is in flux,
  we cannot necessarily use newer versions) ]

Note that we also plan to add APRUTIL and toss expat-lite.
