This is a really bad workaround, IMHO. As it breaks all the paradigms to

You've missed the point, Joe. It has nothing to do with modperl-core.

Apache::VMonitor requires Apache-Scoreboard. There are two different 
Apache-Scoreboard version on CPAN. If Apache-Scoreboard-2.02 is not 
indexed, Apache::VMonitor for mp2 can't automatically satisfy its

is consulted (at least for now).
