It looks like Apache2::SizeLimit fixes though, right? I think integrating
that work into Apache::SizeLimit is a good idea.

Supporting both APIs _and_ sending patches to the dev list seems
contradictory. If I made a version that supported both APIs, I wouldn't
expect that version to end up in a future mod_perl 1 or 2 release.
OTOH, if I just clean up Apache::SizeLimit and we leave Apache2::SizeLimit
alone then sending patches so it can be included in mod_perl 1.30+ makes
If you want to remove it from the distro that's fine with me too.
