APR does not typically rev APIs like Subversion does, although there's
no reason we couldn't do it if absolutely necessary. In this case
though it seems kind of silly to, we're not changing the interface, if
Subversion needs to conditionalize use of the API on fixes to its
internals there's always the APR version number defines for that
purpose.
