APR, not Neon.

Anyway, whether or not /dev/urandom should be the default, and on which
systems (not all systems have the blocking /dev/random problem), is a
question for the APR project, not for Subversion.

We use APR as our portability layer, therefore we shouldn't be in the
business of deciding how APR should behave on a particular platform.
