Yes, in the non-short run.  However, right now my immediate 
concern is to put together a 1.1 release candidate that 

  1) has a functional test suite
  2) includes support for OS X.
  3) has no support for modperl-2, yet.

I'd like to have that ready this weekend, so I can notify the
modperl lists and macosx lists.  Once we get the green light
from some users/testers, we can tag & roll a 1.1 release.

After that, I'm all for moving efforts to including modperl-2 
support, including replacing Apache::test with Apache::Test.

No, I'd prefer to *not* do that until *after* a 1.1 release.
