Hi Philippe,

Thanks for the code -- it looks excellent to me.

I've attached a patch for Apache::Reload that makes use of your code to 
achieve what I'm after.  The patch is against the Apache::Reload 
currently in mp2 cvs.  Things to note:

1. I've removed Apache::ServerUtil and Apache::RequestUtil -- they 
didn't seem to be being used.
2. I've removed the ConstantRedefineWarnings option because your code 
makes use of Apache::Symbol::undef() which avoids those warnings anyway.
3. I've removed the part of your code that skipped removing top-level 
packages -- I (perhaps unwisely) use such names a lot!

If this is going to be put into mp2 (which I certainly hope it is) then 
Apache::Symbol will need to be put back too since your code relies on it.

I've also attached a patch that will produce a mp1-compatible version of 
the same:  Start with the current cvs mp2 Apache::Reload and apply the 
main patch to it, then apply the "for_mp1" patch to that.

I've quickly tested this mp1-compatible version, and it seems to be 
working so far: no "subroutine redefined" warnings are being produced 
(not even for constant subroutines), and imported subroutines are not 
being mistakenly undefined.  I hope this can be added to mp1.28 (which 
already has Apache::Symbol, of course).
