I'm working on a module that will run external programs, doing the right
thing considering params and context. So, for instance, if we just
request that this thing run an external script, and we're running the
script as a CGI under mod_perl2, then it'll run it unders
$r->spawn_proc_prog(), otherwise, it'll use system() or IPC::Run3.

So, in order to make sure that this code also runs on some of our
servers that might still be running apache 1.x and mod_perl1, I wanted
to know what the right way to execute external programs in mod_perl1 is.
