Mod_perl vs. cgi

We recently installed RT 3 on Mac OS X with Apache 1.3 and mod_perl…

We had to make a change in lib/RT/Interface/Web.pm to change the
‘HTML::Mason::ApacheHandler’ args_method to ‘mod_perl’ otherwise we
couldn’t log into the system.

But… we had to make additional changes to handle attachments, as
outlined in the message:

http://lists.bestpractical.com/pipermail/rt-devel/2002-February/
002092.html

Is there a reason that patch was never applied? Should I submit a new
patch?

Because, in general, we’ve found the CGI args_method to be much more
stable and functional than the mod_perl args method, except on broken
vendor builds of mod_perl.
