ASL2 and artistic compatibility

It would appear that the new upstream release of libapache2-mod-perl2 has
been relicensed; from the ASL 1.1 to the ASL 2.0.  As has already been
discussed, the ASL (both 1.1 and 2.0) and GPL are
incompatible (at least, the FSF claims they are).  What has previously
been used w/ modperl (1 and 2, under the ASL 1.1) has been perl's Artistic
license.  The question is, does the change to ASL 2.0 introduce any
incompatibilities with the Artistic license?  Is it safe to upgrade
libapache2-mod-perl2 to the latest version?

As a side note, there was a d-l thread in Feb. about the Apache group and
the FSF talking about resolving their disagreement regarding the patent
termination clause in the ASL 2.0 rendering both licenses incompatible.
Does anyone know if an agreement has been reached?
