Thanks. Doesn't sound too bad. So it's (1) ActiveState, (2) one of the
All-in-one packages mentioned, or (3) build your own. Or - as announced
by the originator of this thread - (4) Strawberry mod_perl.

I stumbled upon a blog post, which may or may not be relevant, or rather
like the domain name indicates:

The Rise and Fall of mod_perl

The title is badly chosen, as it doesn't deal with any rise or fall of
mod_perl, but only with the author's experiences of using mod_perl on
Windows. Could be summarized as follows:

* crashes and leaks running mod_perl on Windows (maybe just FUD, no
  indication it was specific to Windows)
* could be fixed
* desire to use Strawberry and CPAN instead of ActiveState and PPM
  (the former possibly being more convenient to use)
* no success building mod_perl against Strawberry (no need to do this
  any more now as Strawberry offers mod_perl binaries now)
* more crashes on mod_perl/Windows with a Catalyst app
* switch made from mod_perl to Pure Perl Server plus Apache/mod_proxy

Relevant or not, this story makes me ask the following questions:
Are there any people on this list using mod_perl 2.0 on Windows?
Do you have any positive or negative experiences to share?
