Yeah I ran it with PerlTransHandler. It works. So the documentation is
indeed misleading. Thanks for taking time to give such detailed

One more question, is it possible for me to ensure that my module/or
essenially mod_perl's processing of the URI translation happens before
mod_rewrite or any other similar modules, and essentially
mod_rewrite's rules work on the URI modified by me.

Thanks again.
