I'm confused. As a beginner SVN person and the first APR developer, how does
SVN fail requirement 0 right now? If it is in reliability, there is nothing
that the APR developers can do. I don't believe that SVN isn't as portable
as CVS currently. APR has the goal of being insanely portable. The only
platform that I currently know of that doesn't have an APR port is Mac OS 9.
There are some platforms that may be improved by getting a native
implementation, such as AtheOS.

APR is being used in Apache 2.0 currently, and currently works on: Every
known version of Unix, Windows(all versions), Mac OS X, OS/2, BeOS, OS/390,
and AS/400. What platforms are we missing?
