Subject Re: isn't ap_die() broken with recognizing recursive errors and/or should my module leave r->status alone?

it was because of the former that I thought it was bad to do the latter.

over in mod_perl-land there is the propensity for people to play with 
$r->status in handlers (due to Apache::Registry using it as a hack).  I 
always tell them that handlers (Perl or C) communicate their status via 
their return code, not $r->status - doing so will muck with the error 
document cycle, and no core module does it, so don't do it.

it would be nice to hear somebody verify that here :)
