Under mod_perl 1.x on Apache 1.3.x, it is impossible to have two
modules with the same name that do different things, e.g.,
RT::Mason, which is the package defined to handle Location / in

In one of the webmux.pl scripts, change the name of the package
to something other than RT::Mason, for example,
RT::Mason::SiteOne, and modify the entry in httpd.conf to use the
new package name as the PerlHandler for Location /.  In this
webmux.pl, change the stuff you want to be different, for
example, component roots.  This way, you can share most of the RT
modules, without having namespace clashes.

I can be more specific if this doesn't make enough sense.  In
fact, maybe this should be in RT/FM, since it seems to have
bitten a number of people.  The problem is that this is a
mod_perl-ism, and has nothing to do with either RT or
HTML::Mason, per se.
