I'll look into adding them as variables instead :)

r.module_info is because it doesn't need the request_rec object to get
module information (foo:bar(baz) is short for, baz) ).

I admit, it can be a bit confusing, and perhaps we should consider
turning it into r:module_info for the sake of conformity, but I don't
consider it a bug or anything that would stall a backport.

With regards,
