  +As of this writing, mod_perl-2 is known to compile and work
  +with an ActivePerl-compatable Perl (builds 6xx), based on
  +perl-5.6.1. It also works with perl-5.8 compiled with the
  +default compile-time flags in the Win32 F<Makefile>. Because of
  +improved threading support, it is expected sometime in the future
  +that perl-5.8 will be the recommended Perl for Win32 mod_perl-2.
   Apache 2.0 and mod_perl 2.0 can be obtained in two ways - either as
