Subject Re: PCRE symbols
Date Tue, 22 Aug 2000 20:37:05 GMT

If we are going to do this for PCRE, does it make sense to also namespace
protect expat?  That way, mod_perl can use XML again.  I could write a
small perl script that does the name space protection, which would only be
run when upgrading packages if that makes things easier.
