I thought the list would get a kick out of this.  This guy asked a simple 
question and I happened to read his email right after he sent it :)

I want to thank you very much for your expeditious reply.  Turn around of
20 minutes is amazing, particularly compared to support given to customers
of commercial HTTP servers (no names, but I'm sure you can guess... :^)
Anyway, this did work for us, and I feel somewhat stupid for not thinking
of trying an nph- script.  Doh!

Btw, I am currently fighting installation of the Netscape server (it is
missing some features) and am recommending that we continue to use Apache.
The one argument that has been made time and again is the "lack of support"
for non-commercial products.  I intend to use the example of your quick
reply to take the wind out of some of the sails of both my managers and the
Netscape sales people. :^)
