Apache::DBI isn't actually used from our code, but rather from the httpd
perl conf stuff.

Peristent connections require perssistent server processes, which
implies mod_perl on Apache, or PerlEx on iis. I've never used PerlEx
(and don't have window machines to test on), so after mod_perl goes in,
anyone who wants PerlEx support wil have to hack it in themselves. The
persistent server APIs are all different...
