no problem

Can you instead look at this patch:

And integrate that into an mod_perl 1 & 2 Apache::Reload instead? I
would rather not have to maintain 2 ever so slightly different versions
of Apache::Reload if that can be avoided.

Just might ;-)

I guess Apache::Symbol might need to be re-created for mp2.  According
to :
$> fgrep Apache::Symbpl mp2/docs/deprecated_features.txt
  + Apache::Symbol: unknown

There are only 3 functions in there, and they are:

I don't see why we can't find some room for those somewhere in mp2,
especially the magical 'undef' function in there.

Stas: BTW, for Apache::Reload, to get rid of that constant subroutine
redefined, that XS implemtation would get rid of it without a need for
skip_redefine_const_sub_warn. No more $SIG{__WARN__} ;-)

How about if I ported Apache::Symbol::undef to ModPerl::Util::undef ?

Gozer out to bed.
