True... but APR(UTIL) are still undergoing change and finalization and
wrap-up. Once a 1.0 is released, then their ABI will be frozen.

See http://apr.apache.org/versioning.html

The APR libraries are also using Havoc's recommendations for parallel
installations (e.g. libapr-1.so and per-major-version include dirs).
