seconded. apreq has nothing to do with generating output and probably never 
will. it's designed to exclusively handle HTTP input.

mod_perl 2 doesn't do anything special to handle utf8, it just uses PerlIO (if 
available) if you don't call $r->read()/$r->print() directly, which handles 
utf-8 if you tell it to.

It'd be nice to start adding Apache::Request tests to mp2 tests suite too 
(under modules/) like we have for It'd be nice if we could arrange to 
maintain one source of these tests (e.g. in apreq) and then sync them with mp2 
test suite. On the other hand we really want just a few basic A-R tests in the 
mp2 test suite, and leave the thorough testinig to apreq.
