Wish I could... I can't have (because of a fucked up design and
implementation before I came on board) 2 instances running (they clash on
the database side... Who is the idiot storing the status of a cache in the
servlet container in the database where the data to be cached is? Jules!)

Anyhow. Yes, when I rewrite the entire site to run with Cocoon, or with
anything else that allows me to have several instances running at the same
time, well, maybe I will...

It's not thousands of dollars, boy I'm _not_ that expensive... :-)

Anyhow, the "who cares? Go and buy something off-the-shelf" attitude is _so_
wrong... Ok, I'll go shopping in Tottenham Ct. Road and forget about
thinking that there might be a better and more intelligent way out???

Gee, with that attitude noone would have even thought about writing Apache
2, you have such a perfect solution going and buying M$IIS off the shelf :-)
