I can understand the concerns. I am looking for a suggestion that would put us
on equal footing with what php is doing.

It seems PHP has a flag expose_php that is on by default. So I guess we could just
do the same:

ModPerlExpose On|Off

And have it default to On as well? Would that accomodate people's concerns ?
