Why is that class called Apache::Singleton? Is there something that should 
be abstracted out using something less Apache-specific? I don't know if 
Apache::Singleton is anything bad (I really know nothing about it), but 
having something like that in the code sounds like a potential disaster for 
people using other web server software. While it may be harmless now, it 
might not be that in every possible environment or in the future.
