1) remove from cgi-bin: archie, calendar, date, finger, footer (what the 
   hell was this for?) fortune, nph-test-cgi, test-cgi.tcl, uptime,

2) make cgi-bin/test.cgi chmod 444, with a note in the README to make it
   executable in order to use it.

3) remove from cgi-src: 
   imagemap.c (forever!  now that we have a nice imap module) 
   jj.c, phf.c
   modify Makefile accordingly

(you know, you have to wonder how many subs have been ordered through 

4) Move Makefile, animate.c, count.c, post-query.c, query.c, random.c, 
  util.c and util.h into a separate tar file *separately distributed* and 
  *separately versioned* from Apache.  Ben or Paul, I'll need your help 
  doing this (or need you to do it) as I'm still a novice at cvs in terms
  of adding/removing directories.  

5) Comment out the "Scriptalias" directive from srm-conf.dist.  Leaving 
   it enabled automatically is just asking for trouble.

Since this is some major work, I'll put out 1.1b2 tonight without doing 
this, but it should be done before 1.1 final.
