so. it's just a namespace - Apache2::SizeLimit could simply be a thin
wrapper around Apache::SizeLimit, throwing a nice critical log message
to change to the real Apache::SizeLimit, please.

there are ways around that that won't hurt so bad, like the above.

that's fine. _someone_ is going to have to change, be it mp1 or mp2
users if we roll this out to CPAN. or we will, by including a cpan pull
when we roll a release.

I wasn't against a release. I was just saying there's a reason it
hasn't been released lately

well, first things first

look, if we release Apache::SizeLimit to cpan then we're essentially
giving up control of it in mod_perl core. that's fine, so long as we
let users know. but I'm bothered that we'd have something on CPAN that
is 99% the same between mp1 and mp2, leaving us core maintainers with
extra work keeping them in sync, which is much harder when one is
outside our control and in the CPAN wild.

let's just get them working together in the same distribution, put in on
cpan, and pull it into each mod_perl release as they happen...
