  Will it work if you have your perl module require a file filled with 
constants for each site? What I've been doing is my module determines 
the current site via $ENV{DOCUMENT_ROOT} and I then construct the 
correct path to the unique config file for each site. I then "require" 
that file in my module. This works for me, but right now I am only 
testing this with one VirtualHost so I don't know if there will be any 
issues. If not, this might be a good way to do it. I didn't want to have 
an Embperl specific include because I also have regular perl programs 
that run as cron jobs and I want them to also get access to those 
constants too. I just feed them the site name from the command line 
since they have no access to the Apache ENV variables, but the result is 
the same.

  Thoughts on this technique?
