It ain't gonna happen.  The API that exists in 2.14/2.16 is rapidly 
going away.  We can probably agree on something for 2.20 and forward 
that will be persistent, but the stuff in the older versions ( 
and are glaring examples) are not mod_perl compatible and will be 
going away as soon as we can make them do so; so API compatibility 
between 2.20 and 2.16 is probably not a possibility.
