It was a mistake.  I am not sure of the correct course of action
with respect to apr- out there.  As there could easily
be a real, i do not think using something like that for
the new packages would be appropriate, even if it weren't misleading.

Unfortunately no; they install at least one file without a
versioned filename: lib/apr.exp .
