Great stuff Ralf!  Yeah, the mod_perl Makefile and Makefile.PL are messy, in part to support
both 1.2.x
and 1.3.x.  I think once 1.3 final is released, new releases mod_perl will stop supporting
1.2.x and the
current mess will be cleaned up.  Then, I'll make messy all over again to support 1.3.x and
2.0.x ;-)
