This is an interesting point. IMO the ideal solution would be to
convince the APR people to fix their library, but if memory serves,
the problem is from apr_generate_random_bytes() and only affects
Subversion via the getuuid.c file. If you look at the source code,
writing a custom replacement for apr_uuid_get() is trivially easy and
you could probably improve the implementation.
