I am not the culprit here. Look what Cosimo tries to do!

t/response/TestApache2/ is supposed to be loaded by the WEB 
server. It should run in a modperl context. Loading the module into a 
mere perl interpreter doesn't make sense. A::S loads Apache2::MPM to 
check if the WEB server can handle multiple requests at the same time. In 
this case it is not recommended to finish the process just at the end of 
a certain request because that would abort the other requests handled at 
the same time by other threads (where thread means an execution context. 
A single threaded event-based MPM would have the same problem).

Now, the only thing that could be considered a bug here is that 
Apache2::MPM doesn't die when loaded in non-modperl context. But then 
perhaps other people may complain because they load modules in plain perl 
that use() Apache2::MPM but do not call any functions if running outside 
of modperl.
