Here, the aprutil1 package still exists in the 1.7 release area, but
I don't think it makes sense anymore, along the same lines as for

What do you say?
The aprutil1 and apr1 packages are just transition packages to help
people upgrade from the old package naming schema to the new one. They
don't need to be in the 1.7 area if we believe everyone will have
updated their apr1 and aprutil1 packages before they try to upgrade to
1.7. I'm not sure that's true, though. It seems there are at least some
people that only update once every 3-5 years. :-)
