There are no bindings that I'm aware of. I don't think APR would add much
value to Python, which has its own semaphores and memory mapping. Python's
reference counting and garbage collection handle the memory management that
APR pools would be used for.

While I would doubt there is a book about APR itself, I would bet any book
that talks about writing a module for Apache has extensive coverage of APR
(if such a book exists; dunno). There is no docco besides the headers and
the code itself.
