Which docs?

That particular case sounds like an apache-side problem rather than a mod_perl 
one. I don't know enough apache guts yet though, and even less about protocol

The update to Apache::Scoreboard should go out later this week (RCs available 
if you'd like to test).

I don't see why it wouldn't be possible. It's just not exposed through the 
current Apache::Scoreboard API, as no one seems to have ever needed it. If 
you want to submit a patch to Apache::Scoreboard feel free. :) I'm not sure 
what the best approach to providing a writable API would be here.
