Whatís this ďweĒ in ďmaybe we should not fight itĒ? When did you ever contribute *anything* to Perl? Rhetorical, of course.
For people looking for an answer: Itís up to anyone willing to take on the work if itís worth it. mod_perl is not the same thing as the other services and techniques mentioned and itís not what the user above described; there is simply no direct analog. For my part, I will likely never use mod_perl in new code againóbecause I will never choose apache as my webserveróbut I do maintain some in an application on hundreds of production installs and itís always a pleasure to work with.
