My thought (still in the thinking stage) has been to increase the bit
field for the Options and create a ExecUserCGI flag. It seems that I
could probably hook the FrontPage CGI with an ActionType. Before you
yell at me, keep in mind that this is still at the (how am I going
to pull this off stage).  Getting this wrapper thing in would be
a big relief.

The bottomline though is that I am going to have to pull this
FrontPage thing onto my system, like it or not. I've got to find
a way to sleep at night after doing so.
