No good, IMO.  How users trap errors is for them to decide, not us.
Their eval blocks might be wrapping a large section of third-party
code, and not all of the trapped exceptions will come from mod_perl.

If it were my decision, I'd set fallback => 1 and optimize that by
providing subs for the common operations, like '=='.
