Thanks, Jim -- I was misunderstanding what FastCGI was and how
it operated. Please discard my out-in-left-field idea. After
reading docs on the FastCGI home page, I'm thinking that FastCGI
would be preferable to a PHP or mod_perl based solutions in
terms of size, speed, security. If we could port the existing
code for the CGIs to FastCGI in such as way that they would
still compile and run as normal CGIs for people who did not
have FastCGI installed (as the FastCGI manuals indicate can be
done) this would be even better.
