REDIRECT and the like have been deprecated in apache for years, in favor 
of the HTTP_* names.  there are a couple of shortcut names carried over in 
the modperl2 api (see ModPerl/  REDIRECT should 
probably be part of that list.  however, we should not attempt to provide 
a mapping for _all_ of the old deprecated names.  in this particular case, 
the module can be changed from:

use Apache::Constants qw(:response REDIRECT);


use Apache::Constants qw(HTTP_MOVED_TEMPORARILY ...);

where '...' is the fully qualified name.
then it'll work with both 1.x and 2.x
