you can do this:

my $reason = $config->{cmodules_disabled}->{'mod_foo.c'} ||
             'mod_foo.c is not installed';

if mod_foo.c is one in c-modules/ the reason will either be 'version x
required' or 'no apxs configured'

nothing does that.  it does fall through to 'require foo', i don't see the
harm in that.  maybe one does want to check for a "pragma" module that is
only on CPAN: have_module('enum') will work.  i don't see any conflict
between perl names and apache mod_ names.  but we can worry about that

yeah, that's better.
