Nice trick!

I looked for a place to add this to the docs, but I didn't find anything, so
I added it to docs/conventions (together with a short note on mod_perl
version numbers)

patch attachted (feel free to move it to a better place, if you know one)

Thanks Thomas. I doubt anybody ventures to that page.

A few possible locations come to my mind:

put it into mp2 docs (e.g. install.pod) and link to it from guide/install.pod

and/or on the download page?
