I just used a <FilesMatch> section in httpd.conf. Like so:
        <FilesMatch "\.(tx|html\...)$">
                SetHandler perl-script
                PerlResponseHandler TxShow
        </FilesMatch>

This match expression filters out any files that either end in .html.?? or
.tx.??, the two ?? being language extensions used for auto negotiation.

You can build nearly any kind of Regex there to filter out what you want
handled by your mod_perl script and what should be handled by Apache
directly.

Cheers,
Ekki
