I think I remember the discussion, even being against it :)

however, I'm not sure that I made the connection between that header and
backend-proxy statistics...

so, I might be in favor of adding it if

  - we can prove netcraft uses this to determine a php-driven site.  if not
that puts us on an even playing field

  - we can coerce netcraft into translating that into mod_perl usage

  - we have it obey the ServerTokens directive, so if mod_perl doesn't show
up in the server string neither does this

  - we think it actually matters - the vast majority of mod_perl sites out
there won't have this due to software versions, even if we backport it to
mp1 and make a mp1 release, so I'm not sure it would impact our numbers all
that much.
