This begs for a follow-up question, which probably gets into rather arcane perl internals

but..

What does the fact of specifying an "attribute" such as
sub handler : FilterRequestHandler {
actually /do/ ?

When I wrote before that this was my first attempt at writing an Apache/mod_perl output 
filter, I was not being entirely accurate.  I did create and run such an output filter 
before, defined as just

sub redir_filter {
..
}

but I was installing it at run-time, from a PerlAccessHandler module, via

$r->add_output_filter(\&redir_filter);

and that did not seem to be a problem.

But in this case, I would need to configure my filter in the Apache configuration, like in

this other example from the on-line mod_perl documentation :

   PerlModule MyApache2::Underrun
   <Location />
     PerlInputFilterHandler MyApache2::Underrun::filter
     SetHandler modperl
     PerlResponseHandler MyApache2::Underrun::response
   </Location>

So, would the presence/absence of the attribute have any effect on how it has to be 
configured e.g. ?
