Yup it needed a bump.  But I have good news, and switch my vote to +0
(I still don't like rewrite interacting with encoded slashes)...

I forgot that the create_core_dir_config member of the core_module
is actually responsible for creating those dir configs, even for
a third party module.  No one should ever directly create that
structure, so with an mmn minor bump mod_perl and so forth should
not trip us up when the create their own dir sections.
