Some say the pre 64 version of Rodinal is far sharper others the opposite but at these low concentrations the film itself will have a very significant impact. Rodinal brings the best out of APX100 and Tmax 100 in my personal experience of nearly 20 years using Rodinal. In the 70's I tested these developers with the then industry standard FP4 which was and still is regarded as the best film of it's type available.
All I can say is that modern Rodinal with modern films is a superb combination, you can come see images that prove it, and many other UK workers in the 80's & 90's through to today are producing exquisite images using one of the simplest formula of any type.
