It could, but there's reason to assume that just because two projects
share a repository that they also share the likes of API compatibility
and such. That is, just because the APR team tweaks some APIs in
their /trunk doesn't mean that the Apache HTTP Server guys have
changed HTTP Server to track those API changes yet. Rather than
introduce conditional behavior, let's keep things simple and educate
the users.
