I'm not the OP, but I'm guessing he's referring to the fact that it's
far more likely that you're going to tweak a web-app than some "system
binary". Therefore, implementation does matter.
Also, many people are already running mod_perl; it's nicer to
leverage that than to configure additional modules. In my expereince,
mod_perl + apache interaction is more stable than PHP + apache,
especially across upgrades.
