This is what I see now as the simplest solution at all fronts:

1) keep the distro name Apache-Test.

2) s|Apache/|Apache/|

3) contents of Apache/

package Apache::Test;
$Apache::Test::VERSION = '1.02';
package Apache::TestPlan;
# what was previously Apache::Test code follows

I decided to nevertheless plug these two lines in:

package Apache::Test;
$Apache::Test::VERSION = '1.02';

so that CPAN will still index Apache::Test, and we can still tell to 
install Apache::Test, same for dependencies list. Also that's where we 
maintain the distro's version.

Usage-wise, the only change you have to do is this:

perl -pi -e 's|use Apache::Test([\s;])|use Apache::TestPlan$1|' files

Is everybody happy with that solution?
