At this point I hope we're not very far from achieving 100% passing
on the test suite, but my mp2 tuits for this week are pretty much
exhausted now.

I've looked at the source, and I'm puzzled why there's even
a dependency on CGI or apreq2 in there.  Looking at the handler's
treatment of the query string, it looks like the raw query string
is (part of) a subroutine name, so it's not in the "name=value" format. 
For GET, that means CGI and apreq are pretty useless.  Is there some 
clever use of POST data with Apache2::Status?

This is something we will need to deal with.  Once we
can get a fixed on CPAN, I think we should list 
that as a prereq for mp2.

In the meantime, there is some namespace aliasing cruft that
I added to t/conf/, mainly to work around the 
older  Not sure what we should do with that idea.  I'm
generally opposed to binding *Apache:: and *Apache2::, but
doing it for a few select packages might be justifiable
