will do.

Has anyone tried the NCSA 1.4 custom responses ? I found working
from apache 0.3 that depending on what type of document you
rediected to had all kinds of side-effects. Redirecting to a plain
html doc was okay, redirecting to a cgi-script or to a server-side
includes doc caused all sorts of problems and fixing one broke it
somewhere else, and some problems only became evident after a SIGHUP, with
global variables failing to be initialised for a redirect.

I'll try to cleanup the code and upload sometime today, maybe.
