Honestly if you want to continue to work with your cPanel supported
server, I would not mess with it, unless you are willing to do a lot
of extra work.

Now if this is an Apache 2 server, it may not be so bad to compile
in mod_perl, and drop it in as a DSO and go from there.  But would
not do a Apache 1.3.x static type mod_perl compile with your cPanel
server, just configuration headaches.

For building & installing mod_perl, you should really direct questions
to the mod_perl list.  The INSTALL instructions for mod_perl 2 are pretty clear
in the source download.

Right, don't count on it.

One thing to consider is setting up a server on a high port running mod_perl,
and then doing a ProxyPass to it for certain URLs like /perl/ etc.

Another thing to consider is using the asp-perl script in CGI mode to
run Apache::ASP scripts.  This does not require mod_perl but is much slower.
