Please don't; some of us still like apache 1.3.

Why bother to do this? 

Why not just depend on libapache-mod-perl or libapache2-mod-perl2?

libapache2-mod-perl2 and libapache-mod-perl should depend on the
appropriate version of apache; I'm not quite sure why they don't do so
now. [Probably a bug.]

What would be ideal is to figure out what version of mod_perl the
script is running under, and then load the appropriate modules to make
it work. I personally haven't looked at it recently, but I can't
remember anything that would make this impossible.

Miracles had become relative common-places since the advent of
entheogens; it now took very unusual circumstances to attract public
attention to sightings of supernatural entities. The latest miracle
had raised the ante on the supernatural: the Virgin Mary had
manifested herself to two children, a dog, and a Public Telepresence
