Most module authors design their tests to rely on the presence or 
absences of Apache::Test already, AFAIK. t/08apache.t in 
MasonX::Interp::WithCallbacks, for example, looks like this:

     plan skip_all => 'Testing of apache_req requires Apache::Test'
       unless eval {require Apache::Test};

     plan skip_all => 'Test of apache_req requires mod_perl'
       unless Apache::Test::have_module('mod_perl.c');

     require Apache::TestRequest;
     Apache::TestRequest->import(qw(GET POST));

     plan tests => 178;

Anyway, this gives them the option; they could always put Apache::Test 
in build_requires and then expect it to be there, I guess.
