Greetings from sunny (right now anyway) Southern Germany.

I see that you mention mysql.  This probably means DBI.
I think you need to be a bit careful with DBI and Apache::Reload.  I 
seem to recall that there are some particularities there
(Probably in relation to permanent cached database connections).

In any case, I believe Apache::Reload is OK for a development server, 
but on a production server this is probably not very efficient.
There is no free lunch : if you ask the server to monitor certain things 
and do something in case of change, then that has a cost.
