Well, they can't really do that after they hit 1.0. And if they're
going to do that very soon (would it have implications for Apache 2?),
we might want to factor that into our release schedule to avoid an ABI
issue.

(Of course, it won't matter too much if we eliminate all the apr_off_t
uses in our API.)
