I found that the suexec would require a similar rewrite on my server, so I chose to use perl's suExec.
For the moment, this is an experimental server, but I don't see why this could be used on the final
production server as well.
I think this is mentioned in the docs as an alternative to suExec.
Ivan? Any comment?
