Talking to myself again. I think I can make it work either
way.  Apache2::Controller won't use Apache2::Request as a
base, but it will still instantiate the Apache2::Request
object and put it in $self->{r}.  Then if you want to use
Apache2::Request as a base in your controller module to
access those methods via $self, you can.  Otherwise, don't.
