Perhaps the suggested Apache config in the "getting started" docs should 
set Debug to 3.  I know I personally started out just copy-pasting from 
the docs when setting up Apache::ASP.  I didn't start changing things 
until I gained a few clues, and that didn't happen until after my code 
started generating sane pages.  I wouldn't have minded verbose errors in 
the browser when I was a newbie, since they can be turned off later.

I wouldn't even discuss the debug option in the getting started docs. 
Just leave its meaning for newbies to discover later, when they're ready 
to start taking the reins into their own hands.
