Version numbers for apr and apr-util are supposed to match, aren't they? Yet the apr package announced today is 1.3.5?

I thought the same, but we are following Salackware in these packages and they released them with this version numbers. As they seem to work for me (I just launched httpd) I didn't worry too much.
The sw packages are in patches and here is the changelog:

Mon Jun 15 22:14:45 CDT 2009
patches/packages/apr-1.3.5-i486-1_slack12.1.tgz:  Upgraded.
patches/packages/apr-util-1.3.7-i486-1_slack12.1.tgz:  Upgraded.
  Fix underflow in apr_strmatch_precompile.
  Fix a denial of service attack against the apr_xml_* interface
  using the "billion laughs" entity expansion technique.
  For more information, see:
  (* Security fix *)

I will investigate a bit more and report back if I find something.
