I've switched to DSO a while back, mainly because it is just so much easier
to manage installations, upgrades and the like. I can easily build mod_perl
twice, debug, and non-debug, and keep both .so side-by-side.

One symlink (or configuration change), restart, and I can flip back and
forth between different flavors. It's just too practical!
