I think we basically agreed to keep 0.9 at stasis. And expected
the next major prereq jump after 1.x at 2.0.

I'm not worried about maintaining support, but we should have
a serious dialog about going all Unicode/NT and ripping out all
of the Win 32-bit 9x code in the 2.0 trunk, and choosing a new
baseline at that point. I know some have built APR ANSI for
their own purposes, and it is a point we will have to ponder.

In the interim, the api function wrappers should allow us to keep
the ipv6 binding you mention as an optional function. That's the
course I'd prefer in the short-term, are you willing to hack that up
to keep the old stuff running? If no-one is willing then it really
has to be abandoned sooner.
