+          This commit is essentially deciding that an httpd install on
+          Windows now has printenv/testcgi written in 2 more languages.
+          To the extent that the usefulness is that it shows how to make scripts
+          of these types executable by httpd, I believe that the documentation
+          is the proper place to solve that.  To the extent that the usefullness
+          is to show how to implement a CGI in these particular languages, I believe
+          that the httpd distribution and documentation in general is not the
+          place for that.  Historically these types of scripts have caused problems
+          for downstream vendorsas well as newbies (and sometimes the intersection
+          of those two groups) who don't understand that these are information leaks
+          once they are enabled, and the subtlety of the way they are disabled ("Apache
+          messed up the first line; let me fix that") contributes to that.
