right.  for example, it is pointless to document MP_GENERATE_XS, its only 
useful for developers.  MP_PROMPT_DEFAULT might go away.  
TRACE/DEBUG/MAINTAINER one only needs for development or debugging.
i'm thinking INST_APACHE2 should be on by default.  etc.

instead you can say, "hey remember the nightmare number of options for 
1.x?  well you only need 1 option to build 2.x, MP_AP_PREFIX where modperl 
can find the apache includes.  if you need more control, read install.pod".
