I don't want to drop support for running as a plain CGI just yet.

But as Björn points out, making optimizations for running as CGI are probably
not a good idea; or, contrariwise, such optimizations might well be made but
then should probably be unconditional.

Do we see any clear wins in moving to a more “native” mod_perl API? i.e. does
dropping CGI support — the generic API that moots mod_perl 1 vs. 2 — actually
gain us anything?
