it was a follow up from something on modperl@

yeah, I thought about this after committing it - it's definitely better the
way it was.  but it leaves mod_perl users in a lurch if they want to up the
startup time.  the better solution is probably to have ModPerl::TestRun look
at %ENV before it sets the startup timeout.

I'll fit that tomorrow unless you or stas beat me to it.
