Ok. So now I can see the need for the feature.
But obviously your patch can't be applied since it pollutes Catalyst::Request
with a mod_perl specific feature; if you can come up with a better API for
it and a patch with tests that only affects Catalys::Engine::Apache then
I'm sure andyg would be happy to review it and either apply or give feedback.
