Yes, please do!  It would be particularly nice if they handled HEAD
requests correctly.  Also, I would prefer that the distribution puts
all CGI scripts in cgi-src (leaving cgi-bin empty), so that the 
installer has to think about a script before it becomes active.
The only one I would distribute in cgi-bin is the shell script for
testcgi (updated for CGI 1.1, please).
