Hi,
    This patch looks good - I like the renaming to .so; makes
one feel one's on a real system ...:) I wonder about compatability
with pre-Apache_1.3.15, though; even though this (I think) is
just a change in convention, and, for example, doing things
this way for pre-Apache_1.3.15 should be OK, would people get
too confused if a mod_perl.so was installed if they were building
against apache_1.3.12, say? Should we have an Apache version
check in there to use mod_perl.so for 1.3.15 and ApacheModulePerl.dll
for pre-1.3.15? The "advantage" to Windows, though, is that
it forces you to upgrade often, so adopting the 1.3.15 convention
right away might not cause a problem ....

best regards,
randy
