Or at load-time/server-startup, so someone writing

   use APR::Request $some_Apache_Request_compatibility_flag;

could get the current 2.x Apache::Request module API 
(with all the back-compat and @ISA kludges being collected 
into that compatibilty layer, *instead* of being woven into 
our core codebase).  That way the constructor calls within 
an existing 2.x user's source code won't require any edits.
