If you mean mass vhosting of untrusted content, and are still letting authors
write perl and php without knowing where to hunt them down when their scripts
or they personally mess around in their in-process, non-sandbox environment,
you are being foolish.

In-process modperl/modphp is for hosting trusted content.  You'll have to give
them a very restricted language, such as sed or awk, if you want to keep their
fingers away from the dangerous buttons.  Or host them under [fast]cgi which
is what that environment is created for.
