Actually, that's what I'm using. The problem is that it spawns processes
via fork/exec which is horribly inefficient on OS/2 as fork() is emulated
by the C library for unix compatibility only. I've had a look at recoding
it to use spawn() (like I did for CGIs in Apache a while ago) but it isn't
a simple job.....
