Not necessarily, many cpan modules are either thread unaware/innocuous
or thread safe, though there are exceptions.
I have re-compiled Perl with threads with pre-installed libraries and
never had a problem.

You will surely know which things fail when they blow-up or leak you
to death, when you use threading of course. Especially long-running
software like mod_perl. But for that, you always have
maxrequestsperchild ;-)

Now that I mention it, mod_perl would probably need rebuilding IMHO
just to be on the safe side, wherever _that_ is with threads ;-)

Joking aside, I have scaled tremendously with apache mod_perl +
mod_worker a rare but exquisite high-scale Web software recipe.
