I don’t know what you’re talking about.

We recommend the use of [ɹ] — the http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alveolar_approximant — in initial position, in postconsonantal pisition, in pre-consonantal position, and in final position, and the single tap [ɾ] — the http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alveolar_flap — in intervocalic position. 

We do not recommend the trill [r] at all.
