at the moment, the primary thing holding me back is the fact that
the apr people, while they do distribute tarballs of the devel version
of apr, they don't keep them around, so there wasn't a tarball to
point the port to that would be good for more than 5 days.  that,
combined with the fact that subversion tends to track apr really
closely, so we would end up needing to update the port a lot, has kept
me from putting too much time into an apr port.
