  +=head1 Silencing 'Constant subroutine ... redefined at' Warnings
  +If a module defines constants, e.g.:
  +  use constant PI => 3.14;
  +and gets re-loaded, Perl issues a mandatory warnings which can't be
  +silenced by conventional means (since Perl 5.8.0). This is because
  +constants are inlined at compile time, so if there are other modules
  +that are using constants from this module, but weren't reloaded they
  +will see different values. Hence the warning is mandatory. However
  +chances are that most of the time you won't modify the constant
  +subroutine and you don't want I<error_log> to be cluttered with
  +(hopefully) irrelevant warnings. In such cases, if you haven't
  +modified the constant subroutine, or you know what you are doing, you
  +can tell C<Apache::Reload> to shut those for you (it overrides
  +C<$SIG{__WARN__}> to accomplish that):
  +  PerlSetVar ReloadConstantRedefineWarnings Off
  +For the reasons explained above this option is turned on by default.
