I obviously don't have as much mod_perl tuits nowadays as I used to, but I am
still available/willing to take on the RM hat for mod_perl-1.x

I agree, I would rather have a single Apache-SizeLimit that works in
both mp1/mp2 (like VMonitor for instance), and have it included in mp1/mp2
via svn:externals, making the release process the same.

I agree 100% with you here.

Very much so. The core of A::SL is the resource monitoring/measuring, so it should
be not too hard to have a version that plays nicely with any version of mp.
