I suspect the reason it hasn't been reported is because it tends to fix 
itself :)  method handlers (in mp1 at least) require the module to be 
preloaded - otherwise mod_perl doesn't resolve the ($class, $r) stuff 
properly and it doesn't work anyway.

so, I suspect that most people figure it out when the module doesn't work as 
expected, preload the module, and don't see a problem.

does that seem to gel with what you've found?
