I have to, to be able to be consistent in my string-replacement logic.

I'll try the above and let you know.

I guess that if I can do
open my $fh, '>:Apache2:encoding(...)', $r;
then $r, under the hood, must be some kind of filehandle too.
And then I could just do
but then, this being mod_perl, it may leave it that way and have unexpected side-effects 
somewhere else..
