I'm not sure a bit of internal organisation will make much difference
once you start listing TC+TS and TC+Other as equally valid options.
But I don't want to make an issue of it.

OK, thanks.

The main issue we've found is that with a close relationship and with
a large overlap between the dev teams, we've often found a development
in HTTPD driving one in APR, even to the point of "we need a new APR
release that'll support [new HTTPD feature]".  At the same time, the
original reason for the separation - that APR has applications outside
httpd (Apache SVN being one such) - works well.

On reflection, you probably have a cleaner separation than that anyway.

+1 (binding) to your vote.
