Correct. I have installed a secondary perl 5.6.2 & interchange 5.0 onto my
cpanel boxes with almost no problems. Cpanel has none of it's grubby fingers
touching these installs, so everyone gets along just fine. The single
problem I have had is with uploading images via the UI if interchange is not
running as the user account that is trying to write the images. I assume
i've not got the makecat /interchange configure permissions completely
correct, but have not had time to go back and fix it up.

Another note, cpanel tends to grab any requests for
http://yourdomainname.com/interchange and forward them to its own
frankenstien interchange (even if its disabled, arrrg!). Renaming any
interchange directory you might happen to have in your public_html to ic,
and configuring to suit will avoid this annoyance.
