      Thanks Helmut.

      My patch is similar to Maurice's, except that his allows for
      $mod_perl::VERSION to be an empty string. In my case it has been
      assigned the value "1.30". Maurice's patch would just use this
      value. So in my case I ignore $mod_perl::VERSION altogether and use

      Maybe worth noting that, I think, $ENV{MOD_PERL_API_VERSION} is the API
      version rather than the mod_perl version? So I'd expect to see a value
      "2" rather than 2.0.3 or whatever. That means it's not strictly
      interchangeable with $mod_perl::VERSION, but the distinction is pretty
      much immaterial to Maurice's and my own patch, at least at the moment.
