Subject RE: [RFC] Apache::BlockSymLinks 0.1

Geoff, et al:

I've toyed with ModuleConfig, and it is really cool, but I was under the
impression that people stayed away from using it since it appears to
require a recompile of mod_perl for every module that inserts a new
directive into the list. That's why I assumed the use of PerlSetVar was
much more popular than ModuleConfig.
