Hi Joe,

I think that I discussed the following issue with Issac, two years ago.
Actually, the idea to have an interactive fallback for CGI, was mine,
I was the "sponsor", and Issac programmed it (very well!).

Before getting any decision, I want to discuss it again with him, which
can't be done before Sunday:

Currently, is_interactive_mode() is based on GATEWAY_INTERFACE, which
is defined by any CGI query from the webserver (RFC). The second case
is when a user runs it manually, so GATEWAY_INTERFACE is undefined, and
the fallback is to get the params interactively. But there is a third
case - When the user wants to feed QUERY_STRING manually. So if we test
QUERY_STRING (rather than GATEWAY_INTERFACE), we support all the three
cases, because QUERY_STRING is defined by any CGI query (even in POST -
but with an empty content).

I think this is going to be the first stable version with interactive
mode, so it's the last opportunity to change this behavior. I want to
re-check it.
