I'm convinced ...:) That's a good point to be on the edge; it
may confuse some, but that'll happen whenever it's done, and
everyone will eventually run into it with apache, so we might 
as well do it now.

What we could do is just reverse my earlier suggestions - build
a mod_perl.so, but copy it as ApacheModulePerl.dll if pre-1.3.15,
and print out appropriate messages. I'll take your earlier 
patch and add some of this, if you like ...

best regards,
randy
