This raises the question, if mod_perl is "stable", and it is moved to the Attic, 
then do ongoing developments of Httpd etc continue to get tested with things in 
the Attic to ensure say some Httpd update doesn't break compatibility with an 
Attic mod_perl?  A stable mod_perl in Attic is fine as long as updates to Httpd 
or Perl etc don't break it, or a security problem isn't discovered. -- Darren Duncan
