I don't know the right answer. I thought I saw that the obsolete 
packages from from 1.5 were not copied to 1.7. If that's the case, 1.5 
users must update before trying to upgrade to 1.7, right? If so, I don't 
need the apr1 and aprutil1 packages in 1.7.

If we don't require users to update 1.5 before upgrading to 1.7, then 
I'd like apr1 and aprutil1 in 1.7.

I update frequently. Many users at my company update only when they have 
to -- perhaps once every two years.
