Inadequate protection. Subversion libraries and APR binaries might be
upgraded independently of each other, without recompilation.

(And what were we #ifdeffing on, anyway? I don't think APR normally
#defines anything when it provides a new function.)

It's not really the APR authors who suffer. It's users who might run
into library conflicts.
