I think it's more of a perlishness issue than a compatibility issue. Perl 
users don't want to deal with C API implementation details. They just want 
to get an upload object without doing the $body->param_class() voodoo. Move 
the upload object accessor method to the APR::Request namespace, that's 
fine, but please don't make things more complicated.

That would be nice, but doesn't help in my situation where people are stuck 
with RedHat 7 etc. and their bundled Apache1/mod_perl/apreq versions. If I 
ignore them, the number of people using my open-source stuff under plain CGI 
will increase from 90% to 99%, with more people defecting to PHP.
