 From the experiences I have had talking to people on the mod_perl list 
about mod_perl2, the most common issue for users coming from mod_perl 1 
is how to handle the request data other than using $r->args or CGI.  I 
think that having the perl glue install alongside the standard mod_perl 
libraries would be ideal.

IMHO, a sizable chunk of mod_perl first timers are looking to process 
arguments from a form, which can of course be done with CGI but having 
native libraries to handle this would be a big win.  Make the perl glue 
libs readily available to the user with a standard mod_perl install.
