I could take a stab at beginning to port the docs over to
the new namespace. Should I wait on that, or the sooner
the better? If sooner, I'll try to do much of it in one go
this weekend, so as to leave things in as consistent state
as possible.

At one point there was some discussion about whether
or not to keep with the current behaviour of refusing
to install over an old mod_perl-1.99. Is that still the
plan? Just as one small data point in favour of doing
so - at one point I installed both in the same tree,
just as a test, and then found that
   perl -MApache2 -MExtUtils::Embed -e "print 1"
produced an error about a bare word (load) being unquoted.
This may have been an error on my part in the way I
installed things, and so is probably fixable, but as was
raised earlier, it doesn't seem worth the effort to
support earlier mod_perl-1.99 installs.
