As i told Todd Vierling on this list a couple weeks ago, we can
do that, but anyone who installs apr without DB 4 and later wants
to install Subversion will have to reinstall apr.
This won't hurt me, so i won't object much, but it doesn't feel
right. I think the users who have to do that will consider it
broken, and i will agree with them when they complain.
