	Michael:  You deserve to get two beers back for this -- it's 
wonderful that anyone can get help to get older systems working.

	I do agree with you overall though that the focus should be on 
Apache HTTPd 2.4, and given that the older options are discontinued I 
also encourage putting time and effort into upgrading Perl code 
instead of trying to get the older Apache HTTPd 1.x working.

	As long as one isn't relying on the client's dynamic TCP port number 
from $r->connection->remote_addr->port for anything (as I've 
discovered no longer works in the current release of mod_perl2), 
updating to the newest mod_perl2 should ultimately be relatively 
problem-free.  (This client port number business has not been a high 
priority for me to raise as an issue, but if it is something that 
Hans or anyone else is needing I'll gladly chime in with my vote for 
wanting it fixed.)
