actually, that's a good point.  unlike php, which is content only, at what
point do we want to advertise that site foo is mod_perl "powered" if it runs
in _any_ phase?  a simple PerlTransHandler gives it "MOD_PERL POWER!!!!"
(echo, echo...)?

thinking about it like this, I'm ambivalent as to whether I want it in core
at all.  adding to the server tokens should be fine enough I'd think.


/me remembers a talk where he uses mod_perl to remove that "silly
X-Powered-By PHP thing"
