Subject: Re: <limit> behaviour change...

There is one incompatability I've noticed between 0.8.8 and NCSA 1.4
that is not on the compat_notes.html page.

In an exec cgi="" SSI, NCSA will run the script even if it is not a
ScriptAlias (or under a ScriptAlias directory) or resolves to
application/x-httpd-cgi.  Apache, OTOH, treats the cgi="" target as
any HREF="" target.

The counrterord script is a good example of one that breaks.  (And the
script needs to be patched so that it will run the ordinal output
function when called as counterord.cgi, for instance.)  This broke a
few pages here when we switched over....
