How did you ask them?  Less than a minute on their site I found these:

I've implimented scripts provided by CCbill, iBill, and PayPal.  I
haddn't seen until now.  But just looking over their site
they seem very similar to the three I mentioned.

All these payment systems, have their own API, so the program that
interacts with it on your site has to know how to deal with their data
and respond correctly.

Look at the shopping cart page on, there are already about
2 dozen carts that'll work with them.

Maybe a module would speed things up a bit, if you had a lot of
shoppers.  But a cart or just a form for subscription type orders is all
you need.  I don't think you have to deal with the Apache internals at
all.  Perl or PHP should be able to do everything you need.
