how so?  the first line thing is just to say 'scan this file'.  if the
magic isn't on the first line, the file isn't scanned.

right.  so we do it different from .pm's and just eval the 'sub CONFIGURE
{...}' part.  and for good luck, as part of the eval we can toss in:
use Apache::Test;
use Apache::TestUtil;

if the CONFIGURE sub needs anything else, it can 'require' it.  no more
painful to the user than having it another file.

i know that.  i brought CONFIGURE into the conversation because if we're
going to scan .t's for __DATA__ we might as well look for CONFIGURE too
while we're there.
