Sure, that's an option. I don't know if it's one developers would
support.

If I understand the outcome of
http://marc.theaimsgroup.com/?l=apr-dev&m=108860637218865&w=2 right, apr
1.0 may not ship with an apr-config (it would ship with an apr-1-config
instead), in which case we wouldn't be supporting apr 1.0 without a
local hack. And I think that's well and proper; it would make life
harder on third-party application developers to have two sets of
incompatible Subversion ABIs running around.
