I did think about this when writing the patch, but I presumed it would 
not matter.  It's not obviously incorrect to say that IncNoExec is 
"enabled" in such a configuration.  It's not obviously correct that 
mod_perl should dictate that no other bits are set in that such a 
configuration, even if that has been the case historically.

Nevertheless, +1 for 2.2.x
