Subject Re: Defaulting to default-handler from custom handler

perl-script is mod_perl

default-handler is the Apache default (to just send the document)

cgi-script is mod_cgi

so, if you want mod_cgi to do it, try

return DECLINED;

but I couldn't get that to work from a Registry script, since I 
suspect that it's too late to alter the course of the request via 
$r->handler().  a PerlFixupHandler is generally a good place to alter 
$r->handler() to perhaps you can put your logic there instead.

we talk about $r->handler() a bit in chapter 14 in the Cookbook, and 
14.1 has a list of modules and their corresponding handler name.
