Or would you rather say, that you are anxious to publish the article? ;)

The latest development on this front is different. The idea is to leave 
Apache-Test as is, and rename Apache::test to Apache::testold or similar. 
Adjust mod_perl-1.28 to use Apache::testold and migrate all 3rd party modules 
to use Apache::testold by requiring mod_perl-1.28, or bundle the old 
Apache/test in their distros, untill they get a chance to port to Apache::Test.

I'm not sure if we should distribute Apache::testold in Apache-Test. I'd 
rather see this module as becoming deprecated.

Geoff, it'd be nice for your article to sum up this issue, once everybody is 
happy with it. Looks to me like a perfect place and time.
