Unfortuantely, they disappear, so we can't refer to specific snapshots. We
can certainly point people at them, however.

If I can find the time, then I'd like to do a formal release of 0.9.2 of
apr(-util). That will certainly help us out a good bit.

Seems that we could fix httpd today, no? Delete all deprecated functions (in

Hmm? Are we saying that the APR API is "part of" the httpd API, so httpd
won't upgrade to an APR that is missing functions?
