If other programs use apr and/or neon (and they do, of course),
including them in Subversion is definitely the wrong thing in the long
run. Think about how an apache RPM (using an APR-ized apache) and a
Subversion RPM would interact--they'd have conflicting files. Think
about what Debian would have to do if they ran into an APR bug and
needed to apply a local fix, if every APR-using program included its
own copy of the source code.

(I have to deal with this problem frequently at work; the MIT krb5
distribution includes support libraries like com_err "for
convenience," but it's decidedly inconvenient for people who use any
other com_err-using programs.)
