I'm only half-joking here--that code I threw up on the wiki was written
and tested very, very briefly as a proof-of-concept and only handles the
"include" SSI tag ... it uses a registered ADP tag for its
implementation and is likely dangerous to use as-is, but for anyone
who wants to bravely add SSI support to AOLserver, it's probably a good
starting point.

For per-user CGI support, we could possibly add a setuid-root wrapper
like Apache's suEXEC <http://httpd.apache.org/docs/1.3/suexec.html>.
But, for the same reason that Apache doesn't include suEXEC as part of
the default installation, I think it'd be foolhardy to make it a default
part of AOLserver, as well.  But, having support for it might yield some
tangible benefits for those poor folks who have to run CGI under
AOLserver out there.

This would be a nice addition to the wiki.  Anyone care to help write

Either that, or should we implement a "nsmodrewrite" that reads
.htaccess files and parses mod_rewrite rules?  The big caveat is "if you
use this, you'll take a performance hit" ... ?
