In case I wasn't clear on it in the past, the Apache::Test perl module is just the coolest thing.

The docs on how to get it up and running if you're not building your standard everyday mod_perl module aren't exactly the best (so far I can't find a way to set things up wthout using either Apache::TestMM or Apache::TestMB, neither of which I really care about since I'm using configure + make instead of ExtUtils::MakeMaker or Module::Build, but it was easy enough to fake up an Apache::TestMB one liner to do what I need), but once you're over that part it's just so damn cool.

I've now got a test suite that automatically builds the module, configures and starts Apache, runs automated versions of the tests I was doing manually, and shuts everything down, and all I have to do is type make check.

Should have done this much earlier in the process...
