You would typically handle this by running separate instances of
mod_perl for the different versions.  It's more work than FastCGI

There isn't much reason to use hosts that only offer virtual server
setups anymore, now that ISPs offer virtual machines with root access
for such low prices.  People who don't have dedicated hardware should
consider using one of those and running mod_perl or FastCGI rather than
trying to make CGI or the pure-perl server fast enough.
