That sounds great.

I tend to purchase small virtual servers on a job by job basis and have
always had a nightmare getting Embperl to work.

I will buy a new virtual server today, running Centos 5 and Plesk.  I don't
really use Plesk, but it's hard to come by a virtual server that doesn't run
such utilities.  Previously, Plesk would we the main thing that got in the
way of installing Embperl (Apache source was never present, although
mod_perl was installed ready to go).

Looking forward to trying the new features.
