Both are using Apache::Test as a driver. The two have different setups, 
which can be merged at will. But most likelly you will want to "drop" 
the perl-framework tests into modperl tests, since the former only 
requires the httpd to be installed.

But I don't understand why would you want to do that? Just to try?

While written to test mod_perl, most of the tests happen to test httpd 
as well. Though this testing happens using the mod_perl API.
